Winemaker's Notes

Tasting Notes: Deeply extracted, a red rose¢ color harkens this full-bodied, densely flavored, Pinot Noir. Excellent varietal flavors of cherry and berry. Nuances of toast and oak surround the rich central core of fruit. Firm tannins fill the palate with a chewy texture nicely balancing this full-bodied wine. Enjoyable and fruity in its youth, this powerhouse Pinot Noir will continue to develop complexity for several years.

Food Pairings: A fine compliment to lamb and veal and is exceptional when matched with fowl like duck and pheasant, but it relaxes well with less extravagant food such as cheeses, hearty pastas or a classic turkey dinner.
