Wine Review: This slightly opaque ruby colored Pinot opens with a cranberry and red raspberry bouquet with a hint of black cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well balanced, smooth, and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty red raspberry with notes of mild oak and dried cranberry. The finish is dry, gentle, and pleasant. This Pinot is very food friendly and would pair well with pork tenderloin with a peach or apricot demiglace or Thanksgiving turkey. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intense aromas of dark plum, black cherry, and East Indian spices introduce this powerful and intense Pinot Noir. On the palate the wine's juicy mouthfeel is supported by centered acidity building with fruit through the mid-palate to the fine grain tannins on the finish. Beautifully balanced, this intriguing Pinot Noir offers both precision and opulence.
