RATINGS

96Wine Spectator

A supple, graceful style that builds depth and intensity, with ripe, plump black cherry, plum and blueberry notes. Full-bodied, gaining depth and nuance while remaining elegant and delicate.

92The Wine Advocate

...initially rather intense and powerful, but then turns decidedly more elegant with time in the glass. Dark cherries, plums, licorice, mint and spices are woven together nicely in this plush, inviting wine. Floral and spiced notes...

92Vinous / IWC

...Fleshy cherry compote and blackberry flavors gain freshness with air, picking up notes of cola and candied rose. At once rich and energetic, finishing with noteworthy energy and lingering spiciness...

TYPE

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.
