Angeline Reserve Pinot Noir

Black cherry, red licorice, and leafy herbs come through on the nose. Raspberry and pomegranate lead up front, and cranberry joins on the mid-palate. Forest floor and a drop of soy add depth and power. Tannins are soft, acids bright, offering a wide array of food pairings. Drink with duck and pork terrine. Recommended. 89 points. DBH
