Wine Review: This black cherry colored Pinot opens with a very fragrant and attractive black raspberry bouquet with a hint of blueberry and some earthy aromas as well. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and very fruit forward. The flavor profile is a slightly tart red currant with notes of black raspberry, cranberry, and black pepper mixed in. The finish is dry and its mild tannins stick around for a little while. This Pinot paired well with our anise rubbed Giannome chicken breast. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: A trio of Dijon clones: 113, 114 and 115, is well suited to this cool site, producing a Pinot of high-toned fruit character. Blueberry l’eau de vie, black raspberries and Red Beauty plums add charm to the wine's appealing aroma. In the mouth, it shows a smooth entry, ripe concentrated flavors on the mid-palate and savory wood spice on the firm finish. A favorite dinner to serve with this exceptional Pinot is barbequed spare ribs accompanied by cornbread.
