Wine Review: This is a very tasty fruit forward Pinot Noir. It opens with a pleasant musty black current bouquet. On the palate, the wine is juicy, well balanced, and has black current like flavors with hints of spice and dried cranberries. The finish is dry, a touch tannic, and very prolonged. This wine would pair nicely with a steak with a brown mushroom butter sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Sensual aromas of black cherry and raspberry preserves, complemented by a note of nutmeg and spice from the elegant oak. The palate is fleshy and round, with plush tannins that assure a long life. Richness and concentration combine with softness and finesse in this classic example of Green Valley/Russian River Pinot.
