This wine shows lots of finesse for the price. The mousse is exceptionally refined, carrying complex flavors of limes, strawberries, brioche, vanilla and honey. The blend is mostly Pinot Noir, with about 9% Chardonnay.

Ultimate Wine Challenge 2011 Finalist. Yeasty, matchstick scent. Smoky minerality infuses this wine’s wild strawberry flavors with a savory push-pull that’s addictive and tasty. It’s full and graceful, shaped by the fine acidity and tiny bubbles. Dried herbs, especially oregano, adds further intrigue.

Lively and fun to drink, with creamy Asian pear and citrus aromas that lead to crisp, easygoing apple, yeasty cinnamon and mineral flavors. Drink now through 2012. 103,000 cases made. –TF The #78 in Wine Spectator’s 2009 Top 100

Food pairing
A tremendously versatile wine that is equally delicious with shellfish, crab, roasted chicken or sushi. Seasoning affinities include lemon grass, fennel and white pepper. Look to hard aged and triple creme cheeses with Meyer lemon compote for the cheese course.
