The nose of the Pinot noir Temperance Hill boldly walks the line between ripe cherries and raspberries. A signature of this wine is the smoky quality that is a classic feature of its terroir. This year it veers toward fresh spruce balanced by purple iris and wisteria. The mouth is immediately generous with very sweet fruits including wild strawberry and plum. True to 2016, you can crack this bottle and it will be a delight. Always fabulous with grilled salmon or pretty much grilled anything: vegetables, mushrooms, bread and the protein du jour.
