Pale ruby red with spice-tinged aromas that offer sweet tomato and strawberries, red raspberries, allspice. The palate is juicy and lean, ripe but not too, with touches of green fruits and herbs complementing its tart berry notes. High-pitched but not angular, it's overall a vivacious Pinot Noir that partners amicably with salmon, poultry, roasted vegetables, and young cheeses. 13.8% abv | $42 (sample)
