Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from Oregon opens with a mild blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and savory. The flavor profile is an oak influenced beef jerky and black raspberry blend with notes of black olive. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This Pinot will appeal to fans of South African Pinotage. I would pair it with a hearty beef stew. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our flagship "drink-now" Pinot Noir offers a rich, earthy nose of mossy forest floor. Lively tannins reveal luscious blackberries, mingling with plum, a waft of tobacco and a flinty minerality.
