Dark ruby in color with wonderful aromatics of blackberry cobbler, plum and raspberry jam, hints of lavender, blueberry and nuances of coffee and nutmeg.   This Pinot Noir is dark and brooding, yet is lifted with exotic fruitiness.  Bold, velvety tannins lend themselves to a long, lingering finish.  Pairs well with Grilled Meats, Wild Salmon, Game, Duck Confit, Seared Ahi or simple Burgers and Pizzas.
