      Tasting notes :

      A bright light red wine - proper Pinot Noir in color. The bouquet is wild strawberry with a hint of tea leaf, sweet spice, and woodsmoke. A silky and elegant wine on the palate, with notes of strawberry, cocoa nib, and autumn leaves. It is clean and bright in the mouth, with good concentration, vibrant acidity, and fine-grained tannins. This is a very elegant, fresh interpretation of Pinot Noir for younger drinking.
      Food matching ideas: wild mushroom tart, grilled salmon, spelt risotto, cured meats.
