Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir from Oregon is Excellent! It opens with an inviting blueberry and cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, elegant and refined. The flavor profile is a delicious mild plum with notes of gentle minerality and mild blackberry. The finish is dry and its polished mild tannins and flavors linger nicely. This Pinot is impressive and would be ideally enjoyed on its own. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This fruit forward wine is packed with black cherry, cedar, cigar box, anise and cream cola; leading to a mouth of chicory and caraway, spiced plum and toasted almond. The graphite tinged tannins linger to a long finish.

Organic status: not organic
