Pairings 

In my opinion, the flavor profile of the RTR Pinot is very much in line with what high quality, cool climate Pinot Noir is supposed to taste like...low to medium tannin, Tart red fruits & hints of umami interlaced with earthy undertones and spice. Truly elegant and tasty.

A quick side rant: Single Varietal Pinot Noir - in its best expression - should be dry, light to medium body, with moderate+ to high acid, and silky, finer tannins. It always baffles me when I try a wine that claims to be 100% Pinot Noir but it actually tastes like a Malbec. Pinot Noir is not a heavy tannin, super pigmented grape... so if you open a bottle of Pinot Noir with those character traits, the chance that it's been blended and/ or heavily doctored are high.
