RATINGS

91-93The Wine Advocate

...nose of candied cherries, raspberries, smoke, and Asian spices. This deeply ripe, dense, broad, medium-to-full-bodied, and expansive wine is intense, powerful, and muscular, yet is completely refined and focused...

87-90Stephen Tanzer

More reticent, brighter aromas of red fruits, tobacco and brown spices. A step up in flavor intensity and sweetness. This has a supple texture and some density, and finishes with finer, sweeter tannins and subtle 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.
