Winemaker's Notes

The flavors and aromatics of the wine lean toward the exotic, reminiscent of a newly opened jar of five spice, backed by flats of raspberries, cherries and tilled earth. A sip wraps these aromas in a taut, silky texture that slowly evolves over great food.

A classically styled Pinot Noir such as this one begs for mushrooms, game birds, soft cheeses and woody herbs. The bright acidity and long tannins of this wine are the perfect foil for cheese soufflés, bacon kissed tarts and the delicate meat of a perfectly roasted bird, rabbit, or pork loin. The trailing earthiness in the finish complements just about any dish made with mushrooms or truffles. This Pinot Noir is a match made in heaven for all cooks, both neophyte and accomplished.
