Wine Review: This wine from the Central Coast of CA seems to perform very well in the mid ranged Pinot offerings each year. The 2006 vintage is no exception, as our tasting panel recommended it. This bright red wine opens with an inviting light cherry bouquet with hints of vanilla and licorice. On the palate, this wine is smooth, soft, well balanced, straight forward, with very tasty cherry flavors with hints of raspberry. The finish is dry, has soft tannins that are slightly prolonged. This very food friendly wine will go well with chicken parmigiana. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Our 2006 Pinot Noir bursts with aromas of seasoned wood, rose petals, dried cherry, and alpine forest floor, with flavors of pomegranate and Asian spices, with a rich lingering mouthfeel. A versatile wine, this Pinot Noir complements meals of salmon, lamb, poultry and grilled vegetables. Superb now, best enjoyed after a few years in the cellar.
