Wine Review: This ruby wine was recommended by our panel in our recent blind tasting of Pinot Noirs. This wine opens with a spicy raspberry bouquet with hints of musty wet earth. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is smooth, well balanced, with very interesting cherry flavors with hints of vanilla and oak. The finish is quite dry, soft, and lingers slightly. The panel felt this wine would pair nicely with salmon or eggplant parmigianna. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This supple, medium-weight Pinot Noir gets its supple mouthfeel from 35-year-old Heritage clone fruit and its concentration and weight from the younger Pommard and Dijon clone blocks, resulting in complexly layered flavors, elegant texture and a long, smooth finish.
