This is an accessible Pinot Noir that has some seriousness to it as well. More "old world" than a ripe fruit bomb. Garnet in color with some purple swirls. On the nose, it has a classic rhubarb, cranberries and cherries. Medium bodied. On the palate, rhubarb with some cherries. Good acidity. Long finish. This drinks well now on its own but is even better with food. Lighter foods such as chicken salad are a nice match but this will work well with ribs r a burger off the grill. Drink over the next five to seven years.
