Today’s wine is offered at an amazing 52% off, so please hurry! A deal this good - on a wine this amazing - won’t last long!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep scarlet, with flecks of magenta through and through and a touch of lighter ruby around the fringe.

Smell:

Aromatic notes of smoked cherry and sweet tobacco leaf leap from the glass, with touches of dried rose petal, espresso bean, slight vanilla bean, herbal black tea, and a hint of sage present as well.

Taste:

Striking bold sweet plum notes greet you upon first sip, with concentrated flavors of a dark plum and blackberry compote framed by hints of cherry cola, European licorice, subtle dark baking spices, sandalwood, and coffee bean.

Finish:

Long and lingering, this is a hearty and complex Pinot. After a bit of decanting, the fruit flavors really start to sing and provide an excellent drinking experience.

Pairing:

Grilled pork tenderloin, prepared with a dried herbal rub and topped with a plum balsamic reduction.
