Clear ruby with medium intensity, developing, this entry level Pinot Noir reveals aromas of red fruits, cranberry, pomegranate, strawberries, some mushroom notes with a hint of cloves, this wine has nice tannins with good acidity that gives a refreshing finish in the palate. I paired with Spaghetti Bolognese, any red meat recipes would pair well with this wine.
