Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir is a Wow wine! It clearly won our second big blind tasting. It opens with an amazing bouquet of black cherry and black raspberry aromas with a hint of cinnamon. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, terrifically balanced and silky. The flavor profile is a delicious black cherry and plum blend with notes of oak and strawberry. We also detected hints of cinnamon and dark chocolate that added to its complexity. The finish is dry and its flavors are very extended and drift away nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this winner with veal chop. But many also thought it would be lovely on its own. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Deep ruby in color the vibrant raspberry, Bing cherry and sarsaparilla aromas almost leap from the glass. On the palate the wine’s juicy mouthfeel is supported by cherry and blackberry flavors, building through the mid-palate to the fine grain tannins on the finish. An intriguing blend of power and restraint, this Pinot Noir is both savory and delicately sweet.
