Solas Pinot Noir is fragrant with ripe cherry, plum and raspberry. The texture is what made us stand up and pay close attention to this bottles: silky and delicious on the palate. A glass will slip down easily by itself (making it a great choice for parties or those late summer evenings when people are standing around waiting for the barbecue to heat up). It will also make an easy match for a wide range of foods. This is the kind of red that goes with almost anything: grilled BBQ, veggies, fish, etc. It also tastes terrific slightly cool.
