Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot opens with a new leather and strawberry like bouquet with hints of musty oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and savory. The flavor profile is a mild plum with hints of cranberry, dried cherry, cinnamon, and gentle oak towards the end. The finish is dry and its mild and dusty tannins linger slightly. The panel suggested pairing this Pinot with garlic pork roast or lobster ravioli. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Olivet Lane endures as an elegant, shining star in our portfolio. This wine's color is a beautiful, deep garnet hue, reflecting the unusually low yields common to the 2010 vintage. The aroma is intricate and beguiling – full of juicy Queen Anne cherries and mouthwatering dark fruit. Floral notes of roses, oak spice and a hint of black licorice add a layered, vibrant complexity. All of this generous fruit spills over into a palate that is satiny and incredibly rich. At release, this exquisite Pinot is showing only a tantalizing glimpse of what the future holds. Taron Huckle, our talented in-house chef, has created delicious Duck Meatballs with Pancetta Mushroom Cream to pair with this vintage.
