Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir from Cameron Hughes opens with a black raspberry and black cherry bouquet with hints of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, savory and juicy. The flavor profile is a mild black raspberry with nicely integrated oak. I also detected hints of strawberry in the background along with some black pepper as well. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are sticky and linger. This Pinot would pair well with a pulled pork sandwich. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Aromas of cherries and raspberry spice initially leap from the bottle. On the palate, this is clearly New World Pinot, through and through: Bold flavors of cherries and wild strawberry backed by savory spice, a kiss of coffee, and a long, lingering finish. This is a big Pinot with a backbone that will continue to please sip after sip.
