‘Marion’s Vineyard’ Pinot Noir


Luscious, deep-fruit aromas of red cherries and raspberries rise from the glass. The palate is crisply layered and mouth filling with fine tannins. Ripe red fruit obtains complexity from hints of spicy characters, tea leaf and earth. The texture has sophistication and elegance, being sumptuous and refreshing at the same time.


Best enjoyed with a rack of lamb served pink or roast Guinea fowl. It also pairs perfectly with morels and other wild mushrooms, even mushroom risotto.
