RATINGS

92-94Burghound.com

...exuberant and highly complex nose of spice, earth and well-layered red pinot fruit aromas that display a background hint of plum...fine richness to the pure and silky medium-bodied flavors that caress the palate with an abundance of tannin-buffering dry extract on the gorgeously complex finish...

91-94Stephen Tanzer

... Aromas of redcurrant, raspberry, tobacco and game. Round, lush and seamless; in a distinctly elegant style...creamy, deep wine finishes with sweet, ripe, pliant tannins and excellent length.

17.5Jancis Robinson

... Slightly smoky. Savoury from the oak...fresh and lively. Firm yet juicy and very long. Lots of tension...

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.
