Wine Review: This bright ruby colored Pinot Noir from the Russian River opens a fragrant black raspberry bouquet with notes blueberry and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty black raspberry with notes of minerality and oak. I also detected hints of cola in the background. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This Pinot would pair well with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

"Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It’s culture. It’s the essence of civilization and the art of living."
