Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot opens with a black raspberry bouquet with a hint of strawberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, well balanced, and rich. The flavor profile is a black raspberry with hints of anise, vanilla, and black pepper. The finish is dry and it displays moderate tannins. This substantial Pinot would pair well with veal marsala. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Aromas of leather, mushroom and cocoa intermingle with dark plum, cinnamon and vanilla. The wine has a smooth entry with a rich andfleshy mid-palate followed by a long, spicy finish with notes of fig, dark cherry and fennel mixed with caramel undertones. This firmly immense and well balanced wine is a beautiful expression of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.

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.
