2007 Domaine Coteau Pinot Noir

This is an interesting wine, a blend of the Burgundian and the New World. The nose offers up cherries surrounded by wafting odors of mushrooms and scorched stone. The palate is a similar blend of red fruit, tart cherries and cranberry, with mushrooms not washed quite clean of black earth, river rocks charred with a torch until they crack, and a hint of smoked meat. Think Volnay in a forest fire. Drink with smoked duck.
