Pinot Noir is always a go-to for me - whether as a wine by the glass or with dinner and friends. This wine has volume, a big luscious mouthfeel, followed by layers of cinnamon, cherry and raspberry fruits. Hints of vanilla and beautifully soft tannins highlight the deep cherry jam and vanilla evident in this intense, darkly colored Pinot. The mouth-filling taste is like velvet, demonstrating what gentle handling can do for this variety. Food Pairings: One of my favorite pairings is Pinot Noir and poached salmon - I like to highlight the flavors of the wine with a truffle mustard sauce that marries so well with this Pinot and is a great accompaniment to fresh salmon. This wine is soft enough to be enjoyed on its own or paired with pork, beef and coq au vin.
