Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir opens with a light raspberry and cranberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a black raspberry and red beet blend with notes of minerality and oak. I also detected hints of black pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This Pinot would pair well with pork tenderloin with sage. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: This Pinot has a lovely, intriguing aroma. It begins by showcasing cool-area fruits – huckleberries, lingonberries, currants, ripe strawberries, red raspberries and blueberries. Mexican cocoa, chai tea, cinnamon and nutmeg add warm spicy tones. Roasted nuts, morels and mineral notes form an ethereal impression of earthiness. In the mouth, we find a smooth, even palate with good tannin and ample acidity just right for aging. A bit of cherry cordial and toasty caramel augments the long finish of this winsome Pinot.
