Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir opens with a fragrant black raspberry bouquet with hints of boysenberry and cranberry bouquet. On the palate, that this wine is medium bodied, balanced, smooth and very approachable. The flavor profile is a tasty black cherry with notes of ripe black plum. I also detected hints of black raspberry, mild minerality and faint oak. The finish is dry and its mild tannins and fruit flavors fade away nicely. This Pinot is very food friendly and would pair perfectly with grilled salmon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The nose is beautifully expressive—rich and lively notes of red plum, sweet red cherries, baking spices and a hint of toasty oak fill the glass. The complexity follows through on the palate as a tapestry of red fruits— ripe strawberries, Rainier cherries, plum and wild raspberries— are woven together with nutmeg and warm earth. This is a great expression of Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir offering layers depth and balanced acidity.
