Wine Review: This opaque and very dark ruby colored Pinot Noir is Excellent. It opens with a blueberry bouquet with hints of red plum. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, very well balanced and smooth as silk. The flavor profile is a delicious black cherry with hints of vanilla oak and cola. The finish is dry and its flavors are very nicely prolonged. This Pinot would pair well with veal medallions. Hurry this wine will not last long at this price. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: The color is a rich scarlet-red, with opulent aromas of blackberry, black cherry, cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of caramel. The palate comes alive with flavors of ripe raspberries, strawberry jam, a dense blackberry core, warm gingerbread, and a hint of toffee. It is perfectly balanced with refreshing acidity, plush weight on the mid-palate and a wonderfully supple texture. The expansive fruit flavors carry through to a long, pure and persistent finish. When asked to describe this wine, I simply say it’s like a taste of Christmas, all year long.
