Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir from South Africa opens with fragrant raspberry and boysenberry bouquet with hints of black licorice and faint cola. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is blackberry with notes of green olive and mild smoky oak. I also detected hints of strawberry licorice and cherry-cola as well in the end. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This Pinot would pair well with Emeril's roast pheasant. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our Pinot noir is not overtly fruity, soft and "sweet" and it generally shows hints of that alluring savoury "primal" character along with a dark, spicy, complex primary fruit perfume.

Organic status: not organic
