A shockingly light-colored wine, but with real fragrance and flavor. A very good value Pinot Noir from the largely overpriced Burgundy region.
Very light garnet color -- almost like an old, oak-aged rose would look. Scents of minerally cherries and fresh-baked honey whole wheat bread. Lively, medium-light bodied flavors have surprising intensity, tenaciously clinging to the palate with earthy, crisp cherries. Long, vivacious finish, with good acidity. It's a unique style of Pinot Noir. It went very well with whole wheat macaroni with cheese and bacon, and would also do nicely with tomato-less chicken dishes. B+. Was about $22 on sale from Flickinger Wines, Chicago. Imported by Chelsea Ventures, Chicago.
