Rich fruit notes make this red the ideal accompaniment to red meats and mature cheeses. Deep, intense robe with hints of garnet, quite unusual for a Pinot Noir. The bouquet is remarkably powerful, with dark fruit aromas including black cherry and blackberry. The palate is in keeping with that rich bouquet: powerful and long-lasting. The tannins are silky smooth, lingering long on the palate.
A natural partner for grilled red meats and even ragouts, this hearty red will be every bit as impressive when paired with vegetarian fare.
