Rich, dark and full bodied, this expansive wine is full of black-fruit flavors and smoky oak, all wrapped in a velvety texture that helps coax black-cherry and dark-spice notes into a lingering finish. Editors' Choice

Juicy and rich, with concentrated dark cherry and boysenberry flavors, featuring cocoa and chocolate cream accents. Asian spice notes emerge on the finish.
Aromas of ripe cherry, cola, and toasty vanilla fill the senses, followed by vibrant flavors of dried currant, black plum, raspberry, and cherry. A note of maple brown sugar rounds out the soft finish. A velvety texture and bright acidity distinguish this naturally-balanced wine.
This wine pairs perfectly with salmon, fowl and meat entrées like beefbourguignon or rack of lamb. During the holidays, pair our Pinot Noir with an herb-roasted turkey, gravy and cranberry sauce dinner, or other dishes like a fall harvest salad with butternut squash, pumpkin seeds, pecans and greens, sweet potatoes with walnuts, bread stuffing with herbs, sage, wild rice and giblets, and even roasted goose.
