Tasting Notes

The 2012 Pinot Meunier is a beautiful dark purple with deep red hues. Aromas of strawberry, cherry pipe tobacco, bacon, blueberry and tea, can be found of the nose of this wine. The 2012 Pinot Meunier is light to medium bodied with flavors of dark cherry, anise, plum and pepper on the palate. Big tannins build up with great acid providing a nice round mouthfeel and velvety finish. Enjoy this wine now or age for 5 to 7 years from release.

Food Pairing

We recommend pairing with grilled pork chops with rhubarb chutney.
