Texture/Structure 

Effortless yet weighty, with rustic tannins adding breadth and roundness to the palate.

At The Table 

This Pinot Noir pairs perfectly with salmon, roasted poultry and pork loin. Some less conventional pairing ideas include skirt steak tacos or lamb burgers with tzatziki. 

Glassware 

A traditional Pinot Noir/Burgundy glass with a round bowl will convey this varietal’s profound aromatics and structural characteristics.

We recommend serving at 55°.
