A modern example of Pinot Noir, showing dried black cherry, black tea, dried cranberry, and swiss herb candy with a whiff of pipe smoke. There is a sweetness on the nose, but the palate is dry and the tannins are present in the front. The dried fruit aroma is refreshed by a pronounced acidity, typical of the variety and the cooler vintage. I would recommend fattier game and poultry dishes, or lightly aromatic tomato based sauce on pasta.
