The nose is greeted with intense blackberry and black cherry fruit with spice and a touch of toasty oak. The mouthfeel is big but silky and builds on the black fruit with spice and earth with a hint of cedar. The acid is bright enough to balance out the texture and carry the wine into a long finish.
The intense combination of blackberry and blueberry on the nose are a match for grilled pork loin with blackberry sage sauce. The spice components of this pinot tie in well with chipotle, adobo and raspberry marinated flank steak or even ginger spiced blueberry shortcake. The bright acid stands up to firm textured cheeses like beaufort or appenzeller. Try blue cheeses Cabrales or Point Reyes Bay Blue with a drizzle of honey and spiced nuts complete a practically perfect pinot cheeseboard
