Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from Cakebread is very good! It opens a pleasant mulberry and wild strawberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, nicely balanced, smooth and a little juicy. The flavor profile is a very tasty black raspberry with notes of mulberry, black plum and gentle minerality. I also detected hints of oak and strawberry in the background. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate tannins show very nice length. I paired this terrific Anderson Valley Pinot Noir with the New York Times Beef Stroganoff meatballs. Both were yummy. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2015 Two Creeks Pinot Noir displays fresh, fragrant aromas of red and black cherry, raspberry and tea-leaf spice. The palate is lush and mouth-filling with rich blackberry, strawberry, raspberry and plum flavors that segue into a long finish suffused with notes of black cherry, spice and mineral. Delicious now, this full-flavored, cool-climate pinot noir will develop additional complexity with up to five more years of bottle aging.
