Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot opens with a mild black raspberry and blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is a slightly tart black raspberry with notes of red cherry and strawberry. The finish is dry and its mild tannins linger for quite sometime. This is an easy to drink, but not overly complex Pinot. It is friendly and would pair well with a big thick grilled Angus burger. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: With its broad array of origins and clones, this wine displays both red and black fruit aromas (cherries and raspberries), on the nose and the palate. In addition, one finds a light touch of brown spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice). True to our house style, it is elegantly textured with satiny, polished tannins showing in the finish. Pair it with salmon or ahi, veal or pork, poultry (think duck) or beef, or hearty vegetarian entrees. - Dave Paige, Winemaker
