This wine is notable for a deep ruby color and subtle range of dark cherry, raspberry, blueberry, anise and toffee aromatics, kissed by a hint of vanilla. An intense entry is followed by ripe, dense berry flavors while mature, fine tannins add silky texture and depth. Toasty oak perfectly integrates into a lengthy finish.
Estate Chef's Pairing
This Pinot leads itself to several seafood preparations due to its soft tannins and excellent acidity. Salmon is a classic Pinot Noir pairing, though other good combinations are wild mushroom risotto, ragu, almost any light meat fowl smoked or dark meat fowl roasted with winter root vegetables.
