As refreshing as liquid fruit salad in a glass, this wine opens with vibrant and explosive aromas of cherry and raspberry that leap from the glass. Flavors mirror aromas of red and dark fruits, hibiscus and melon highlighted by leathery cigar and tobacco overtones. The mouthfeel is soft, juicy and well-rounded with fresh acidity. The velvety tannins focus on a silky mouthwatering finish, inviting the second sip. Meant to drink young. Our Founder, Jim Bernau, calls this wine, "Pinot Noir Candy". Enjoy now through 2014.
This versatile wine is wonderful by itself or with cedar plank salmon, a filet with cherry reduction sauce or salad with dried cranberries and hazelnuts. An excellent addition to your Summer BBQ. For something slightly sweeter, pair with strawberry Crème Brulee.
