A Best Buy
TASTING NOTE: Floral and lifted, this still showcases Pinot Noir's earthiness. There's a characterful beetroot complexity underlying the cherry and raspberry and a nice hint of barrel spice adding depth. The spine of bright acidity makes this an excellent food wine. Try it with salmon or grilled duck breast. (Vintages panel, April 2019) Price $ 19.95
