Wine Review: This garnet colored pinot opens with a spicy strawberry like bouquet with hints of cherry as well. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and creamy. It displays sweet cherry flavors with notes of clove mixed in. The finish is dry with soft tannins and subtle. The panel would match this wine with a veal chop with rosemary or spicy Mexican food. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Gowan Creek is the home to our new winery and offers a perfect mid-valley winegrowing location that combines warmer Anderson Valley elements with coastal fog and cooling influences from the northern end of the valley. As a result, this wine is a classic expression of Pinot Noir, with signature aromatics, lush extraction and rich texture. The nose displays the wild blueberry and blackberry layers that have come to define Gowan Creek, supported by notes of loganberry, char, black pepper and dried meats. On the palate, the attack is immense, the tannins long and the acidity persistent, all combining to create a wine with sumptuous, dark-fruit-driven complexity.
