Wine Review: This red colored Pinot opens with a mild orange bouquet with a hint of smoky raspberry and strawberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy going. The flavor profile is a tasty mild red plum with a hint of red currant and cherry. The finish is dry and mild tannins are very friendly. The panel suggested that this Pinot would pair well with shrimp cocktail followed by pork tenderloin with peach chutney. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Our appellation blends are nearly always among our most exciting and alluring wines. They combine complementing cuvees crafted from our finest vineyards to create amazingly complex and complete wines. Consider this wine benefits from the brightness of the Allen Dijon clones, the depth of the Rochioli Pommard and richness of Hallberg Cruz clone; creating a symphony of flavors, texture and intrigue. We are pleased by the tremendous generosity of this wine…without excessive weight, density or extract. Delicious, bright, juicy and satisfying; a wine we are confident will be enjoyed and greatly appreciated by our customers.
