Wine Review: This bright red Pinot Noir from Davies is very good. It opens with a mild cherry and black raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, slightly acidic, bright and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty black cherry and black raspberry blend with hints of mild oak, blueberry, milk chocolate and clove spice. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity linger nicely. I would pair this Pinot with blackened salmon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Aromas of cranberry and dark cherries combined with vanilla, and licorice. The palate is youthful and vibrant, typical of the Sonoma Coast. Mixed berry cobbler, with hints of nutmeg and cinnamon, carries through to a long dense finish.

Organic status: not organic
