Winemaker's Notes

Color: Bright ruby red.

Aroma: Lifted notes of raspberries, blackberries and boysenberries are complemented by subtle savory notes.

Palate: A luscious, medium-bodied Pinot Noir with a round, soft, full palate, well-balanced acidity, supple tannins and lingering flavors. Blackberry and boysenberry dominate the palate and are supported by hints of raspberry and redcurrant. The wine has rich savory notes on the palate with a full, lingering finish.

Aging: This wine is drinking beautifully now and patient cellaring will be rewarded during the next four to five years.

Food pairings: Ideal with red meat dishes, strongly flavored fish dishes, or pasta with tomato-based sauces.
