93The Wine Advocate

Morello cherry and boysenberry, the whole cluster imparting subtle sous-bois aromas...palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp red cherries and fresh strawberry...a harmonious, sensual finish that is sophisticated and plain delicious.

91Wine Spectator

Firm in texture, with a grip of tannins around mineral-laced blackberry and licorice flavors, persisting into a plush finish.

Red Wine, Pinot Noir

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.
