RATINGS

Ripe, tangy, dark-red fruit. Really sweet on the palate – both fruit and oak sweetness. So much so that is seems to lack some freshness. It certainly has depth and is already so smooth. Just a little chewy on the finish.

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.
