Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot opens with a vanilla infused bouquet with notes of red cherry mixed in. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very nicely balanced, and approachable with tasty black cherry and raspberry flavors. The finish is dry and its fine grained tannins drift away nicely. This Pinot would pair very well with broiled salmon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Navarro's best Pinot Noir tastes so good because it comes from healthy vineyards. The wine was fermented in small open-top bins, punched down by hand the old fashioned way and than aged for a year in a selection of our best oak barrels from, no surprise, a diverse group of French coopers. The aromas are bright with cherry and plum but there is an earthy, mushroom quality, and a hint of cocoa and leather that bring you back for another sip.
