The new bright red “P” makes this standout on the shelf, and winery founder Tom Huggins and winemaker Steve Anderson take a fruit-forward approach for their approachable Pinot Noir. The light hand taken with the oak program allows for pretty aromas of plum, raspberry and pomegranate to shine well ahead of the black truffle hint. Inside are dark notes of Bing cherry, dark chocolate, plum, raspberry and black olive. Smooth tannins and pie cherry acidity give this pleasing length. The culinary team at the Salem-area winery suggests pairing it with smoked salmon sprinkled with red wine vinegar, fresh ground black pepper and dill seed, then presented on a bed of rice.
