Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from Anderson Valley is very good. It opens with a black raspberry and plum bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is plum with notes of black raspberry, black cherry and gentle oak. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This Pinot is food friendly would pair well with pork tenderloin. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Deep ruby color prepares the senses for the intense spiced aromas of brambly wild berries, black tea, and sandalwood. The palate offers satin-textured layers of juicy rhubarb and Bing cherry with earthy forest floor. Ripe, velvety tannins bolster a lengthy finish highlighted with mineral undertones.
