Wine Review: This light red colored Pinot Noir from the Russian River open with a strawberry bouquet with hints of light plum and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, juicy and elegant. The flavor profile is wild strawberry with notes of mild red cherry and faint red raspberry. The finish is dry and fades away nicely. The delicate Pinot would pair well with a pork roast or lamb. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A medium ruby color, with aromas leaping from the glass. Dark red fruits and cola, pure essence of the Russian River Valley floor. Prominent acidity in this wine leads to a mouthful of cherry juice, herbal notes and spice. Flavors linger long on the palate with a hint of toastiness and earth to round it out. Love it! My perennial favorite go-to wine day to day, month to month, year to year. This wine would pair well with a cassoulet of pork and white beans.

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.
