This Pinot Noir features beautiful, concentrated fruit. An amazing value, we find it a great everyday wine. Ready to drink!

  • Still young and a little distant at first, mostly with dusty, earthy notes on the nose but also surprisingly concentrated ripe fruit scents, a hint of floral perfume, and suggestions of wood. Comparatively light in body, but exhibiting rich fruit flavors balanced by brisk acidity on the attack before a rush of renewed fruit on the mid-palate and then an extended, slightly tart finish with a hint of cola spiciness. Approachable now, but likely to improve in bottle through around 2016. Excellent value. An excellent example of the appellation.

    Food pairing: Duck; lamb; roasted chicken; earthy, mushroom-scented dishes

  • Sweet spice, oak, truffles and concentrated red fruit aromas play on the nose. Medium body, with slightly tart red fruit and spice on the palate. Also with a violet note. Moderate but refreshing acidity. Attractively dry, spicy finish of moderate length. Easy to drink. Approachable now. Light enough to serve with white meat or substantial fish dishes.

    Food pairing: white meat or heavy fish dishes
