Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir from Fess Parker opens with a fragrant strawberry bouquet with hints of red raspberry and pomegranate. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, savory and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a tasty red raspberry and black raspberry blend with hints of vanilla oak, strawberry, anise and red beet. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors last for quite a while. This Pinot is food friendly would pair well with Cajun styled blackened snapper. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: On the nose, this wine exhibits aromas of black cherry, forest floor, lavender, raspberry, rose petal and vanilla. Flavors of Bing cherry, red currant, cranberry, earth, cacao and a touch of mineral can be savored. Pair this wine with a nice cheese plate, grilled salmon or braised short ribs.
