RATINGS

97The Wine Advocate

Cherry and black raspberry with their spirituous Doppelganger...remarkable depth and intensity. On a palate of incredible textural richness, liqueur-like black fruits; palpably dense chalkiness; demiglace of myriad meats; and mysterious notes of decadent wood and forest creatures pick up further complexity (as if this weren't over-kill!) from toasted pralines, brown spices, and dark chocolate...finishes like a tidal wave moving across the palate with sinister reverberation...

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.
