This exceptional Pinot Noir showcases lively aromas of strawberry, raspberry and black cherry grounded with earthy sandalwood and leather notes. The wine has a round, medium-bodied structure complemented by silky tannins. Grown in the Lake Erie region of Pennsylvania, this exquisite wine was aged for 13 months in premium French oak puncheons to achieve a refined, light oakiness nicely balanced with fruit.
When it comes to food pairings, this dry red is very versatile; lean or smoked meats, creamy buttery dishes and Asian entrees are all good partners.
