Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Oregon opens with a mild cherry-cola and gentle oak bouquet with a hint of strawberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, smooth and elegant. The flavor profile is a very tasty mild strawberry with notes of cherry. I also detected hints of red plum and blueberry. The finish is dry and its refined gentle tannins and flavors drift away nicely. This Pinot is classy and will pair nicely with pheasant Normandy. Yum! - Ken

Your comments on this wine:

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
