Wine Review: This opaque and dark ruby colored Pinot Noir opens with a fragrant black raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a mild black currant with notes of plum and oak on the back palate. The finish is dry and its fine tannins are gentle. This Pinot took a bit of time and air to open up. Decant it in the near term and serve it with pork tenderloin. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A dramatic Pinot, it virtually leaps out of the glass, totally capturing our attention. When we explore a glass of this wine, our first impression is a rich, mouthwatering perfume of violets and blueberries. With further aeration, multiple layers reveal aromas of candied black cherry, cocoa and cinnamon. The palate is generous with masses of dark fruit. Its tannins are smooth, sleek and richly integrated ― imparting a silky plushness to the mouth. Superbly balanced acidity gives this Pinot an elevated feeling as though it's a poised dancer ― a true indication of longevity.
