The nose is rich with dark spice, earthy notes, coffee bean and blackberry. Layers of dark plum, wet stone, cedar. An elegant Pinot Noir with all the hallmarks of the Arroyo Seco appellation.
Perfect for lighter meats like veal, pork and poultry, plus heavier seafood like salmon. Try it with duck with tart cherry sauce, pork chops with bacon relish and anything with a sprinkle of garam masala.

“Vivid red. Deeply pitched cherry and dark berry scents, with subtle oral and peppery spice notes adding lift. Broad and fleshy on the palate, offering bitter cherry and black raspberry flavors and a touch of licorice. In a plush, weighty style, finishing with strong punch and smooth, slow-building tannins.” – Josh Raynolds
