Tasting Notes: The 2008 version of this fine Reserve Pinot Noir from Cassini Cellars will appeal to Pinophiles who like a little funk in their wine. A familiar red fruit and toasted oak profile from the 2007 vintage is accompanied by barnyard and cured meat aromas in the new release. This adds complexity to the wine which also boasts silky smooth tannins and food-friendly, mouth-watering acidity. An excellent pairing for duck confit or BC salmon. Drink 2011-2014.
