One of Alderbrook Winery’s fabulous small-production specialty wines. “Delicate with right-on black cherry fruit and smoky oak, this Pinot Noir is an easy-to-drink, on-point version,” says Norm Roby of the Wine
Spectator
.

“Bright raspberry aroma, elegant fruit flavors, toasted oak, hint of roasted coffee, easy drinking, ripe fruit, good length,” the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

“This is a classic Pinot Noir,” say the winery’s tasting notes. “Cherry, roasted mushroom, strawberry, and violet scents phase gracefully into spicy plum flavors. It is full-bodied and supple, with a firm center.” Match with pork loin roast, grilled salmon, quiche, pastas with pesto or cream based sauces, and fall fruits and mild cheeses.
