RATINGS

94Wine Enthusiast

Ripe and smooth... Red berry fruits...balance, elegant and stylish...

91The Wine Advocate

...a fine bouquet with crushed strawberry, Morello cherry and minerals on the nose, all with commendable focus and delineation. The oak here is adroitly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, well-judged acidity, fleshy red cherry and raspberry fruit and a refined finish with appreciable substance.

91Burghound.com

Here too there is just enough reduction to knock down the nose but not so much as to completely mask the spice and wood elements. There is excellent volume and punch to the extract-rich middle weight flavors that possess a relatively refined mouth feel, all wrapped in a generous, toasty and fleshy finish that delivers fine length...

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
