Earthy notes dominate, showcasing the Clarksburg terroir and creating more nuanced complexity. Bright acidity and a touch of minerality frame this fruit-driven wine. Lively on the palate with a nice toasty finish, this fuller-bodied Pinot Noir lends itself to a bevy of food-pairing opportunities. Try pairing with veal ragu and porcini mushrooms, a hot Italian sandwich on ciabatta bread, or a simple margherita pizza.
