Allen Meadows’ Burghound Tasting Note:
Once again there is a heightened level of freshness to the essence of red pinot fruit that is laced with pretty floral and discreet earth nuances. There is excellent punch to the detailed and lightly stony middleweight flavors that also conclude in a moderately firm, rustic and youthfully austere finale that displays sneaky good length. 88-90 Points, January 2023
Great with grilled meat, game and hard mature cheeses
