This inaugural Pinot Noir for the Dante line has a brilliant garnet color with aromas of sour cherry, dried orange peel, a hint of clove over a back drop of earthy leather. The palate is rich and supple on the entry with pomegranate, sandalwood spice and finishes with a balanced touch of cocoa and coffee.
This wine is an incredible value in the market place and better than most; dare I say all Pinot Noirs within its competitive set and many at twice the price.
This wine pairs well with sundried tomato pesto pasta, Rabbit Ragu with soft polenta or roasted pork loin with balsamic glazed Brussel sprouts. Drink now through 2012. 5,000 cases produced.
