Expressive of its origin it’s quite tasty considering the fact it’s a bargain-priced Pinot Noir. Forward notes of earth and spice are nicely offset by tangy cherry and wild berry flavors. Well balanced and drinkable alone, it’s better with foods like mushroom-based vegetarian dishes, or herb-roasted pork or beef. Available at Costco for $12, and BevMo! for $19.99, both in SLO.
