Review date: June 7, 2017

Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir from Youngberg is very good. It opens with a fragrant red raspberry and cinnamon bouquet with a hint of watermelon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused red plum with notes of oak and red raspberry. I also detected a hint of strawberry towards the end. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors are nicely prolonged. This Pinot is food friendly and would pair nicely with a grilled pork tenderloin. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Rosehips, cinnamon, and light sage are the first aromatics. Pie cherry, red current, and raspberry fruit fill your mouth with a hint of flint. Finishing off with layers of smoke and leather, yet still refreshing. Nice lingering finish that is drinkable now and will be at its best in another year. A drink now Pinot to pair with chicken, turkey, burgers and other light dishes.

Organic status: not organic
