Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Cakebread was well liked by all that tried it. It opens with a fragrant cranberry and cherry-cola like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a red raspberry and plum blend with note of strawberry rhubarb. We also detected hints of oak, black pepper and craisin in the background. The finish is dry and moderate tannins are nicely prolonged. I would pair this very good Pinot with grilled pork tenderloin with an apple sage sauce. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Our 2014 Two Creeks Pinot Noir displays fresh, fragrant aromas of ripe black cherry, raspberry and rose petal with background hints of sandalwood and oak toast. Rich and vibrant on the palate, its succulent Bing cherry, wild berry and plum fruit leads to a long, flavorful finish featuring enticing cherry, spice and mineral tones. Delicious now, this elegantly structured, cool-climate Pinot Noir will benefit from up to five more years of bottle aging.
