Considering this is made by the same folks responsible for Jonata, you’re getting yourself a screaming bargain. Jump-starting the palate intensity with ripe Santa Barbara fruit, it dishes up briary raspberry and cherry notes with a little bit of herbs on the finish. The Paring has rapidly become a staff favorite for delicious Pinot that doesn’t break the bank.

The 2018 Pinot Noir sports a medium ruby/purple color as well as earthy cherry and raspberry fruits, violets, and peppery herb-like aromas and flavors. It's nicely textured, with terrific balance as well as outstanding purity of fruit, all making for a smoking value in Pinot Noir. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years or so.
