Cardinal Rule Wine’s Pinot Noir truly embodies the 2014 growing season. The cool foggy mornings and warm afternoons, coupled with long hang time, allowed for perfectly balanced tannins and a consistently classy finish.
The aromatics of cherry cola, exotic spices, ripe plum, and a hint of rose petals give this wine the combined power of elegance and complexity. Pair with
grilled salmon or a pasta dish for a bright, yet balanced taste.
The wine is drinking beautifully now and will age gracefully over the next five
