The nose of this pinot noir has black cherry, cedar and spice. The black cherry continues onto the palate with blackberry, pinot spice and some bramble. Substantial, yet smooth mouthfeel with some light sweet toasty oak. Carries a long finish of cherry and spice. This earthy and brambly pinot noir pairs outstanding with pan seared duck breast, roasted quail or grilled lamb. The dark cherry flavors found on the palate make it a perfect companion to dark chocolate and toffee deserts. We also suggest trying with a mild soft cheese or a tangy hard cheese and fig compote.

Wine EnthusiastEarthy and feral, this Pinot from the Sonoma County sparkling wine house of Gloria Ferrer shows the producer's attention to detail with still wines. With soft layers of balanced wild strawberry, cedar and distinctive brambly spice, it'll serve perfectly alongside roast duck.

Wine SpectatorA tight, sturdy effort, offering little beyond the dusty, earthy dried berry and herb notes. Ends with crisp tannins. Drink now through 2022. 7,900 cases made.
