Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Oregon opens with pomegranate and red plum like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a red plum and red raspberry blend with notes of gentle minerality and oak in the background. I also detected hints of black tea and a touch of pepper in the end. The finish is dry and its mild tannins are noticeable as this wine fades away. I would pair this Pinot with a grilled pork tenderloin. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: White pepper, bright candied cherry, and allspice lift the nose. The flavors explode with sweet black cherry, honey, rhubarb, mineral and sweet barrel notes. Finishing on a sweet tobacco note with layers of flowers like honeysuckle. A beautiful and classic Pinot to pair with duck breasts, baked salmon, or pork tenderloin.

Organic status: not organic
