This delicious Pinot Noir is a great choice for sharing with friends over the last days of the holiday season. Rich with fruit and very well balanced for drinking now, this Pinot offers flavors of blackberries, plums, black cherries, and earth. It’s nicely balanced by zingy raspberry with floral and spice notes. It’s quite delicious on its own, and a great choice for pairing with anything from seared peppered ahi and wild salmon to filet mignon or prime rib. Available at the Santa Maria tasting room (across from Costco on Highway 101), it’s $28 retail.
