Dusty dried strawberry, Chukar Cherry, plum and raspberry with crushed herbs, slate and saddle leather behind. Its flavors carry that theme with juiciness, picking up some red currant with sandy tannins and a flourish of Montmorency cherry. Thomas Houseman and his team suggest serving this low-alcohol Pinot with Cornish game hen, Peking Duck, char-grilled octopus or a five-spice dish.
