2006 Mcrea Cellars Counoise

Another really obscure Rhone grape put to good use. On the nose, youthful, med intensity, strawberry, raspberry, smoke, and mineral. Nice nose, very Pinot Noir like. On the palate, dry, bright red berries, good acidity, smoke, coffee on the finish. I could see this going well with salmon, because this is so New meets Old World Pinot Noir.
