Wine Review: This dark ruby colored wine opens with a very inviting moderate black raspberry bouquet with a hint of licorice and spice. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is lively with pronounced acidity. The flavor profile is spicy raspberry with notes of pepper. The finish is dry and its tingly tannins sail on for quite some time. The panel felt this wine would pair nicely with pork tenderloin. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: For those of us who have fallen in love with Olivet Lane, it is the focus that is so compelling. The purity of cherry fruit in all its forms – Bing, Black, Queen Anne and chocolate dipped – is celebrated in the aroma of this garnet hued beauty. This wine acts as a sponge, demanding nearly 80 percent new French oak each vintage, yet imparting only a hint of nutmeg. The most elegant of our Pinots, this regal wine is soft and velvety on the palate, leaving an enduring finish to savor.
