Review date: June 7, 2017

Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir from Youngberg is very good. It opens with a fragrant red raspberry and cinnamon bouquet with a hint of watermelon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused red plum with notes of oak and red raspberry. I also detected a hint of strawberry towards the end. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors are nicely prolonged. This Pinot is food friendly and would pair nicely with a grilled pork tenderloin. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Rosehips, cinnamon, and light sage are the first aromatics. Pie cherry, red current, and raspberry fruit fill your mouth with a hint of flint. Finishing off with layers of smoke and leather, yet still refreshing. Nice lingering finish that is drinkable now and will be at its best in another year. A drink now Pinot to pair with chicken, turkey, burgers and other light dishes.

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.
