Wine Review: This red colored Pinot Noir from Theopolis finished third is our first big blind tasting. It opens with a fragrant and attractive strawberry bouquet with hints of saddle leather and black tea. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a very tasty mild red plum with notes of strawberry. We also detected some hints of dark chocolate and light oak mixed in. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this gem with a grilled salmon burger or roasted Cornish game hens. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This Pinot Noir is a wine of beauty and elegance, with aromas of black cherries, delicate rose petals, and cranberries. It is highlighted by subtle undertones of forest floor with flavors of dark red and black fruits to round out the bouquet. On the palate, this Pinot Noir is savory with bright acidity adding length to the clean finish. This Pinot Noir pairs beautifully with fowl, pork and cured meats, and will accompany a variety of creamy cheeses.
