Lovely cherry-berry aromas and flavours in this smooth, medium-bodied red wine. This is a remarkably great price for pinot noir, let alone a California pinot. Perfect for turkey and roast chicken.

Terrific Turkey Wine

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Bright ruby red in colour, the 2008 Pinot Noir opens with vibrant aromas of raspberries and cherries with the slightest suggestion of the dried herbs, apricots and toasty vanilla. On the palate, the allure of Pinot Noir unfolds with a smooth finesse and attractive burst of juicy red currant and cherry. It has a solid fruit core, good mid-palate and smooth finish that pairs nicely with roasted chicken, herbed-rubbed pork tenderloin or wild mushroom pasta.

De couleur rouge rubis, le Pinot Noir 2008 ouvre avec des arômes vibrants de framboises et de cerises avec un soupçon d’herbes séchées, d’abricot et de vanille rôtie. En bouche, l’allure du Pinot Noir développe une finesse et un éclat de cas

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
