Garnet in color with a varietal rustic nose. On the mid palate the wine dislays varietal raspberry and some gently earthy and rustic notes. On the medium length finish the light red fruits linger nicely with smooth gentle tannins. This is definitely more of a fruit forward lighter pinot. I would give it an 88 or so. We paired it with BBQ salmon and it went well. Don’t pair it with anything too big or you won’t be tasting the wine at all.
