Wine Review: This garnet colored Pinot Noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands is very nice. On the nose, we smelled cherry, cranberries, vanilla and a hint of rhubarb. It is light to medium bodied. On the palate, this wine was bright with initial sharp acidity with flavors of red cherry, cranberries, vanilla and strawberry. The finish was long and the soft tannins faded away nicely. We would suggest pairing it with grilled pork loin with a peach glaze - Stuart & Karen

Winemaker Notes: This elegant and opulent Pinot Noir features aromas of cranberries and graham cracker with earthy overtones. The palate reveals ripe red fruit flavors complemented by balanced tannins and a long, lingering finish. Pair with any game bird served alongside truffle risotto.
