Wine Review: This bright ruby colored Pinot opens with a spicy raspberry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very nicely balanced, easy to drink and soft. The flavor profile is a tasty raspberry. The finish is dry and nicely extended. Pair this tasty Pinot with a broiled salmon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Rich aromas of wild strawberry, rhubarb, and ripe plum; combined with subtle notes of tea and sweet vanilla. The mouth is silky layered with flavors of black cherry, cassis, and toasted oak. Firm acidity and delicate tannins focus the palate and provide a lingering finish of spice and red fruit.
