Pinot Noir Kessler-Haak Vyd 2012

Powerful and intense. Succulent red cherries, mint, exotic spices and wild flowers open up over time, but it is the wine's persistence and exquisite beauty that truly elevate it.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of ripe red berries, cola, licorice, and Asian spices. Spicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that are vibrant and focused. Silky tannins coming on late and adding grip to the long, mineral-driven finish.

Food Pairing

Lamb chops with rosemary mint pesto, Bacon, brie and fig grilled cheese, Pad Thai
