Wine Review: This red wine opens with a slightly earthy bouquet with a touch of oak. On the palate, the fruit flavors explode in your mouth. The flavor profile is raspberry and a touch of strawberry. The mouthfeel of the wine is round and a touch acidic. The finish is dry and quite extended and tingly. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Aromas of raspberry puree, cherry compote, fresh herbs and red licorice. Tight and focused fruit on the palate with layers of red currant, wild blackberries and juicy blueberry balanced by fresh acidity.

Organic status: not organic

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Pinot Noir.

My Grandmother is over eighty and still doesn't need glasses. Drinks right out of the bottle.
