Cherry aromas are layered in this deeply-colored Pinot Noir, and secondary notes of mint and forest floor can be found in the nose as well. Fresh red currant flavors are concentrated on the palate, and well-balanced by a nice earthiness and mild spice reminiscent of coriander and sandalwood. Full-bodied for a Pinot Noir but matched with a mouthwatering acidity, this style of red wine is unusually versatile. Velvety tannins stretch out the long finish with a trace of red ripe fruit as the final flavors linger.
Aquinas Pinot Noir is a superlative food pairing wine. Try it with roasted duck with plum sauce, herb flat bread with grill-roasted artichokes or savor with a plate of your favorite cheeses.
