Wine Review: This bright red colored entry-level Pinot Noir opens with a very fragrant red raspberry and oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a gentle oak and red plum blend with notes of minerality. I also detected some hints of red cherry and a dash of cinnamon. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins subtly fade away. This Pinot is friendly given the price point and would pair well with mahi-mahi sandwich. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This dark garnet gem delivers bright cherry, strawberry and raspberry fruit with elegant earthy notes infused with cola and mild spice accents. Oak aging adds a hint of vanilla and a soft, toasty finish.
