Wine Review: This wine was my favorite wine presented during the live blogging session at this year’s Wine Blogging Conference. This bright ruby red wine opens with a pleasant spicy strawberry and raspberry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, smooth, and soft with delicious cherry and light raspberry flavors with notes of spice. The finish is dry and its tingly tannins linger for quite some time. This wine would pair quite nicely with a pork tenderloin or salmon dish. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: A mouth full of juicy black cherries, with aromas of raspberry and violets complemented by vanilla bean and sweet toast. This is a rich and elegant pinot, with a lingering finish to bring you back for more. We make this artisan pinot noir from vines grown at 900 feet on gravelly, south-facing slopes.
