Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir from Maggy Hawk opens with an attractive cherry-vanilla bouquet with a hint of cola and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and slightly acidic. The flavor profile is a very tasty red cherry and vanilla oak blend with hints of black pepper and minerality. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this very good Pinot with a lamb burger with asparagus risotto. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The delicate and floral 2014 Jolie opens with light aromas of cranberry and rose petals before deepening into a more opulent nose of anise and red plum. This is a well-structured wine, with finely knit tannins on the palate and flavors of pie cherries, blueberries, and a finish with hints of smoke and allspice. A classic Pinot Noir in style, it beautifully illustrates the elegance of the Pinot Noir grape.

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.
