Wine Review: This garnet wine was served with the newly designed Riedel "Oregon" Pinot Noir glass which really enhanced the wine’s bouquet. Upon swirling it displayed mild black cherry like aromas. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is round, very smooth, not overly complex, and has pleasant dusty plum like flavors. The finish is dry and fades nicely. This wine paired well with our filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Clear and vibrant, the initial aromas of this wine are of raspberries, blueberries, baking spices, and Bing cherries but evolve to the more complex aromas of clean earth, minerals, smoke, red currants and flint. The mouth fulfills the expectations promised by the aromatics and has a rich texture, good acidity and a strong structure. The 2006 A to Z Pinot Noir shows great poise, concentrated depth and purity within a lacy framework. Rich, classically proportioned and built for mid-term aging.

Organic status: not organic
