Wine Review: This dark salmon colored wine made from Pinot Noir opens with a fragrant red raspberry bouquet with hints of wet stone and strawberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and lively. The flavor profile is a tasty mineral infused mild tangerine with a hint of peach and touch of pink grapefruit. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This wine is food friendly and it would pair well with shrimp scampi. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Wild strawberries, crushed rose petal, lavender and pink peppercorn lead to a palate reminiscent of watermelon salt water taffy, amoretti cookie and red currants. The bright and briny acidity is perfectly balanced with a touch of fruit sweetness.

Organic status: not organic
