Winery: "Gorgeous flavors, almost syrupy in its concentration. Dark, rich and potent, with layers of complex black cherry, raspberry and cinnamon. Deep, with pretty fruitcake and spicy aromatics."

Wired For Wine: Come out of the twilight, winelovers, and sink your teeth into this bang-for-your-buck-like-you-read-about Dreambird Pinot Noir!! Yup; it's from Transylvania, and it seems they can do other things there besides spin legends which stand the test of time and turn out world class gymnasts... Open your first bottle and savor it with bite-sized salmon cakes and a balsamic drizzle. "Gorgeous flavors" indeed. The clean and concentrated black cherry notes, spicy aromatics, and earthiness of this Dreambird are made to pair with salmon, roast duck, lamb, mushrooms, tuna and even Sicilian style Pasta dishes like 'alla norma‘ with eggplant. The dark fruit is perfect alongside roast duck breasts with pomegranate-chile sauce. For the earthy side of this "amazing" Romanian red, we suggest herbed lamb chops with Pinot Noir sauce. On the lighter side, but no less delicious with this wine is a grilled pork tenderloin with fresh fig skewers. Refill those glasses generously and bring out a creamy French Saint Andre cheese with a crusty baguette. Forget about pinch me; bite me, I'm dreaming!!
