Has the aroma of the Pinot Noir grape variety, which in fact makes up 90% of the blend. This is a black grape with white juice and is highly prized not only for its structure but also for the subtle notes of red fruits which characterize it. A touch of Chardonnay gives freshness, while the more supple Pinot Meunier grapes impart a fine after-taste.
The Wine Advocate "A delicious entry-level wine with excellent depth and definition. The broad shoulders of the Pinot Noir come through in the wine's rich, expansive core of red fruits and long, creamy finish."
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar "Light gold with a steady bead. Pear, quince and lemon zest on the nose, with a subtle leesiness adding depth. The lemon note adds a vibrant touch to fleshy orchard fruit flavors, which are a touch loose on the back end. Easy-drinking and fresh, with good finishing clarity and an echo of pear."
The Wine Spectator "Rich and toasty, this boasts of red fruit, showing its Pinot side. There's also a delicacy to the concentrated, solid structure and a long finish. Well done."
