Wine Review: When I first tried this Pinot Noir this spring it was still a little tight. That said, three months later our mini-tasting group found this Pinot to be opening up nicely. It is dark ruby colored and opens with a black raspberry and musty oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and a little juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty black cherry with notes of blackberry and flinty minerality. I also detected hints of plum and oak. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins fade away nicely. I would still recommend a good swirl or decanting this wine in the near term as it helps bring out its best flavors. We found that it paired very nicely with our duck confit tostada at the Stonehedge Inn in Tyngsborough, MA. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Beautiful garnet hue. The aroma suggests a medley of strawberry and raspberry with a slight hint of toasty oak. Medium body and lively on the palate, the crisp natural acidity lifts these aromas and provides a long elegant finish. Aged one year in 100% new Burgundian cooperage and another year in the bottle, the 2013 Pinot Noir is drinking very well with ample natural acidity to lie down and continue to develop for years to come.
