Zesty cranberries, rhubarb, and herbs. This wine has this invigorating wild cherry, red currant, and pomegranate, but then it’s also got a forest thing going on with some wintergreen, tarragon, and cinnamon. There are some beautiful, soft tannins which is rare for such an affordable Pinot.
Great with a classic coq au vin, or even simple roast chicken, pan-seared pork chops, and earthy mushroom dishes like risotto or grilled portobellos.
