    Winemaker's Notes:

    Aromas of briary chocolate, brambly red berries and just a hint of stemmy spice lead into earth, cocoa dusted espresso beans and a sprinkle of orange peel characters on the nose. On the palate, flavors of cherry compote are complemented by fresh bramble and a hint of tar and grilled meat that finish with a lingering twang of chalky tannin.

    The perfect match for chargrilled quail and rosemary, Peking duck pancakes, Beaufort cheese or bruschetta with olive tapenade and feta cheese.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Here's a steal: a light, crisp, cherry-scented pinot noir with delicate weight and refreshing length of flavor. A high-toned scent of juniper and rose adds to the wine's finesse. Compellingly drinkable. Best Buy.

    Such a good Pinot Noir. Compared to brands on either side of its price this is still my favorite of its variety. Light and easy drinking with enough oomph to actually pair with a variety of foods.

    The wine was really insignificant tasting. Okay, but after a day of being open it was musty. Perhaps I got a bad bottle (it being an above 90 score) but it was way too light for the pinot I like and didn't keep well.
