Wine Review: This dark cherry red colored Pinot Noir from Oregon is very good. It opens with a strawberry and old oak bouquet with hints of black raspberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, juicy and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty tart black cherry and plum blend with notes of slightly smoky old oak. I also detected hints of pomegranate. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away and linger nicely. This Pinot is food friendly and would pair well with a pork shoulder roast with figs, garlic, and Pinot Noir. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Ruby red color with aromas bounding in lush cherry and strawberry fruit. The palate is alive with blueberry, Marion berry and dark cherry pie pushing flavors in the realm of preserves. Very approachable tannins linger for a lasting finish with slightly more acidity for a lovely balanced wine. A drink now Pinot to pair with chicken, turkey and other light dishes.
