94James Suckling

Brightness and purity to this wine with strawberry, bark and light-mushroom aromas and flavors. Medium body with fine tannins and a fresh, vivid finish.

91The Wine Advocate

...very fruity nose of fresh raspberries, pomegranate and redcurrant jelly plus suggestions of bouquet garni, underbrush and cracked black pepper. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers a good, firm texture of ripe, fine-grained tannins and plenty of freshness, nicely supporting the bright, well-defined red berry flavors, finishing with a lively herbal lift.

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.
