Ships in 3-5 business days.
Opulent and sophisticated, this is an intense and inviting Pinot upon first swirl. Packed with ripe cherry, strawberry fruit leather, brambleberry and blueberry, the fruit expression is heightened by anise, earthy notes, well-integrated toasty oak, with a whisper of violets and white flower blossoms. Upon entry, the highly structured palate shows an energizing interplay between bright, lively acidity and generous, silky tannins. It then broadens and mellows into a lingering, satisfying finale.

Pairs well with blackened fish, lamb burgers, grilled portobello mushroom sandwich, and minestrone.

This wine is tangy and fresh, with lively acidity carrying flavors of red cherry, cranberry and blueberry. Lifted tones of rose and white pepper counteract a full-bodied richness and complements the lushness of the fruit.
