This is the kind of Pinot Noir that welcomes you warmly because it smells like cherry pie and clove spice. Fruit-forward and velvety, expect flavors of raspberry, rose, and a bit of earth. Can work with anything from roasted root veggies (like beet or sweet potato) or even oily fish (like wild-caught salmon).
