Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from Ramey is young. It opens with a black raspberry bouquet with hints of blueberry and cola. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, a little acidic, juicy and quite fruit forward. The flavor profile is ripe black raspberry with prominent notes of black pepper. I also detected hints of mild blackberry, minerality and some oak mixed in as well. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins linger for a bit. This Pinot is big enough to warrant a little decanting in the near term. After a little air, it softens enough to be enjoyed with pork tenderloin with thyme and fig. You can also cellar it and safely try in in a few years. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: One of our coolest sites, Platt Vineyard yeilds are low due to typically poor weather at bloom coupled with incredibly small berries and clusters. The combination produces a Pinot of uncommon density and structure. This wine will benefit from a few years in your cellar.
