Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir from Drew opens with a very attractive black cherry and plum bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, rather acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is mild plum with notes of minerality and oak. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins stick around for quite a while. This Pinot would pair well with pork tenderloin. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Cherry red color with a bright purple rim. The nose is complex with savory notes of sage, all spice and pennyroyal followed by cherry, plum, cranberries and pomegranate. The flavors are consistent with the aromas with a iron mineral edge. The acids show good presence and tension balancing well with the velvety tannins. This wine is showing its austerity now, which bodes well for age worthiness.
