RATINGS

92-94The Wine Advocate

The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, well-judged acidity and a sense of composure and grace on the focused finish. There are touches of licorice just lingering on the long aftertaste...ravishing and decadent.

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.
