A saignée of Pinot Noir from the Russian River and Green Valleys. Despite only six to eight hours of skin contact, the hue is a deep rosy pink with orange glints. The scent is of melon and strawberries muddled with yellow peaches, but the body feels crisp, with solid, sparkling acidity and herbal accents, plus a brisk pink-fruits finish.
Pair with fresh cheeses, salmon, sushi, and salads.
