Friendly aromas of sun-ripened cherry, blood orange and pie spice balanced by darker notes of forest floor and spice tea.
The wine is precocious on the palate with tightly knit flavors of cranberry, raspberry and orange zest that wax more vibrant and expansive as the wine breathes. Its well balanced, gregarious nature makes it a perfect dinner companion.
(pee noh nwahr)—A tricky grape to grow, Pinot Noir makes some of the best wines in the world. The prototype wine is red Burgundy from France but Oregon, California, New Zealand, and parts of Australia also produce good Pinot Noir. The wine is lighter in color than Cabernet or Merlot with relatively high alcohol, medium-to-high acidity, and medium-to-low tannin. Its flavors and aromas can be very fruity or earthy and woodsy, depending on how it is grown. It is rarely blended with other grapes.
