Wine Review: This very dark purple and slightly opaque Pinot opens with a heavenly blueberry and blackberry pie bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and loaded with fruit flavors. Those fruit flavors are ripe boysenberry with notes plum and blackberry jam. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors linger well after the wine is gone. This Pinot will appeal to readers who love their Zins and big Aussie reds. Pair it with roast duck breast. Enjoy – Ken
