Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir from the Anderson Valley is Excellent. It opens with a fragrant red raspberry bouquet with hints of cherry-cola. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and very smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty boysenberry and cherry-cola blend with nicely integrated gentle oak. I also detected a hint of plum and dark chocolate. The finish is dry and its fades away nicely. This Pinot is very food friendly and be perfect with filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

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.
