This Pinot Noir has a deep garnet color with ripe cherry and strawberry rhubarb, backed with earthy tones and subtle clove spice. Simply put, it has the Pinot Noir perfume backed with earthy spice. On the palate the wine is a full bodied Pinot with finesse. It is very Burgundian in style in its reserved use of oak, yet it is sappy on the palate with rich, sweet cherry and soft tannins. This is a serious Pinot Noir which drinks better than most wines at twice the price.
This wine pairs well with tuna seared rare with couscous and broccoli rabe. Try it with Peking Duck and spinach or double cut pork chops glazed in a peppercorn balsamic reduction served along side haricot verts or brussel sprouts and a garlic and breadcrumb stuffed heirloom tomato.
