Wine Review: If you are looking for an easy going Pinot to enjoy slightly chilled on the porch this summer. Look no further. This brightly colored light red wine opens with a very aromatic red cherry bouquet with notes of strawberry licorice. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, easy drinking, smooth, with strawberry flavors with slight notes of spice and watermelon. The finish is dry and pleasing. It lingers for some time. This quaffer is very food friendly and would pair nicely with burgers off the grill. This is a nice summer red. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Vibrant and explosive aromas of roses, cherries and wild strawberries dominate with hints of sweet juice and warm spices. Flavors mirror aromas with strawberries, and cherries dominating complemented by juicy and spicy characters. The mouthfeel is soft, round, juicy and well-balanced with fresh acidity which highlights the fruitiness. Peak drinkability is 2008-2010.
