Winemaker's Notes

This wine is just easy to drink. Whether with fresh grilled salmon or left-over roast chicken or just in a glass by itself, the pretty plum and spring strawberry flavors of ABC SB Pinot are simply delicious. There is nothing pretentious here, just well balanced, nicely textured, brightly fruity wine that seems to go with everything.

Critical Acclaim

"Vibrant and heady, this wine's full-throttle flavors of juicy red fruit and red-apple skin have plenty of complex spice. It’s not powerfully structured, but it is mouthwatering, the kind of bottle that two people can open and easily finish. For roast quail."

I bought this wine initially because it was marketed as a Thanksgiving wine, good to pair with anything. I agree. It's light and super easy to drink. My Thanksgiving guests really liked it, but it was a little too light for my preference. However, I bought it again to serve at another dinner since it won't offend any palates which makes it good for entertaining. PS Plus have you seen the picture of the winemaker on the learn about: au bon climat page? Awesome.

Light and easy. Good flavor and not too fruity. I wouldn't hesitate to pair this red with fish or poultry
