Bright and bursting with fruitiness, almost candy-like (but without the sugar-sweetness)…here are strawberry-rhubarb-raspberry tones under laid with classic Pinot Noir spiciness, a soft and easy acid-tannin texture and a pleasing minerality on the palate. Try with Provencal cuisine; casual American fare; grilled vegetables, meats, fish.

Wine SpectatorWith enticing aromas of lavender and berry, this is rich, supple and elegant on the palate, with a vibrancy to the fruit and a suppleness to the texture. Long and fruity on the finish. Drink now through 2011.

Wine EnthusiastPolished and supple, this is a killer Pinot to have with food. It's not an overbearing wine or a light one, but shows restraint in the pomegranate, cherry and spice flavors that are so well integrated with tannins, acids and modest oak. The result is a balanced, elegant wine.
