Winemaker Notes
Dark red almost black in color. The aroma is classic fruit-driven with cassis and dried fig notes, fine earthy mushroom with elegant toasted sandalwood and iodine. The mouth-feel is rich with good concentration and layered with ripe tannins and is well balanced with vibrant fruit, nice oak and some licorices and minerality. The finish is long with dark chocolate and some black olive. This blend is a great statement for this region and will unfold for many years to come.
Food Pairing Notes
We suggest decanting this wine for at least one hour before serving. Pair it with rich red meats, especially lamb and game, wild mushroom risotto or aged and “stinky” cheeses. This wine will age beautifully.
Other Notes

Description

Winemaker Notes
Dark red brick in color. The wine is filled with beautiful fine black cherry and roasted sandalwood aromas and hints of strawberry rhubarb pie with baked pie crust. The wine has a rich yet elegant mouth-feel with of ripe berry notes, great structure from subtle ripe tannins and the oak wonderfully integrated. There is an overall fruit-driven core with a creamy yeast note, fine classic earthiness and lovely acidity. The finish is savory and playful with nice lush fruit and good minerality which goes on and on in a delicious way. This Pinot Noir is a beautiful food companion that is animated and interesting. It is a pleasure to see this wine open up in the glass, and it will be fun to see it mature over the next decade.
Food Pairing Notes
This Pinot Noir is the perfect food wine. Pair it with appetizers like a wild mushroom and burrata bruschetta, or rich creamy butternut squash soup. Try with fish like grilled squid or steamed lobster. Pair with meats such as a fennel-garlic pork roast or roasted goose with crispy skin. Sip on a fancy Friday with leek-and-pecorino pizzas, or finish a meal with ripe and flavorful cheeses like gruyere or melted brie.
