Boutique winemaker Susie Selby hand-crafted this Pinot Noir from Sonoma County fruit. It offers red berry fruit aromas with floral and spice notes. On the palate, soft red cherry, raspberry and cranberry flavors dominate with hints of cassis and savory herbs leading to an acid-balanced finish. Drink it with salmon, tuna, oysters en brochette, mushroom dishes, roasted vegetables, roast fowl, game light meats, and cheeses. A portion of sales is donated to the Greater New Orleans Foundation. Buy it at: Elio's Wine Warehouse, Dorignac's and Langenstein's in Metairie. Drink it at: Bayona and Bouche. — Brenda Maitland
