Course Pairing / Description Wine

“High-toned red fruit is complemented by citrus-squeezed vibrancy in this full-bodied red, that presents as fleshy on the palate. A grit of oak adds power to the lengthy spicy finish.” 90 points Wine Enthusiast
David Bruce Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2015

“The 2016 Dundee Hills Reserve Pinot Noir displays a dark ruby color. Nuanced aromas of wild forest strawberries, dried rose petals and white pepper set the tone. Juicy red plum and cherry coat the palate with notes of sage highlighted in the background. Velvety soft tannins and a mild acidity add weight and balance.” Winemaker’s Tasting Notes
Four Graces Willamette Valley Dundee Hills Reserve Pinot Noir 2016

“Rich aromas of black cherry, pomegranate, and wild strawberry; with hints of rhubarb, tea, and earth. The mouth is silky; with flavors of cranberry, ripe plum, and sweet vanilla. Firm acidity and delicate tannins focus the palate and provide a lingering finish of spice and red fruit.” Winemaker’s Tasting Notes
Truchard Carneros Pinot Noir 2015

“Aromas of strawberries, tar and light earth follow through to a medium body with fine and light tannins. A floral, watermelon and citrus aftertaste. A pleasing purity of fruit to this.” 92 points James Suckling
Morgan Twelve Clones Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2016

“Rich and creamy, with clove-scented notes of black cherry, plum and licorice that are vibrant and expressive, while intriguing details of forest floor and fresh herb linger, adding another dimension. Shows terrific harmony on the finish. Drink now through 2028.” 92 points Wine Spectator
Loveblock Central Otago Pinot Noir 2015

“More moderate though hardly invisible wood sets off the sauvage and earth-inflected aromas of both red and dark currant. The juicy, even sappy flavors possess an appealing succulence that carries over to the stony, youthfully austere and mildly woody finale that exhibits excellent length for its level. A fine villages.” 91 points Burghound
Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin 2016

“A brambly and perfumed wine that has plenty of sappy red cherries and spices. It's full of fragrances and sweet-berry perfumes, not to mention a little touch of rose petals. Crisp tannins come into play from the get-go on the palate, heralding flavors of raspberries and red cherries. A beautifully defined, long and balanced style. Majestic structure and a deep and focused finish. Best from 2018 and up to 2025.” 96 points James Suckling
Giesen Clayvin Vineyard Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013
