On the nose it's got a nice chocolate/blackberry/slight strawberry essence. Even a touch of earthy/leathery aroma. On the palate, it's a firm wine with a solid complexity. Drank the first glass out shortly after opening, but also decanted for later. The first glass had rich, ripe red fruits and a solid tannins to finish. This would be a great wine with burgers, steak, or even a hearty risotto. I like this wine a lot and found it through a Northwest wineries tasting event at a local wine shop.
This is a very elegant wine and has a wonderful complexity for a Pinot Noir. It's nice to the nose and has a soft palate. Lot's of ripe berries with this wine, but a surprising amount of richness and earthiness that I detected. This is a great drinking wine. We paired it with shellfish in pasta and a buerre blanc and it made for a nice pairing.
