Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Ancient Peaks opens with mushroom and black raspberry bouquet with hints of wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, juicy and fresh. The flavor profile is a black raspberry and black plum blend with notes of stony minerality, clove and black pepper. I also detected hints of blueberry, saline, and cedar. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate dusty tannins drift away nicely. I would pair this very good Pinot with coq au vin. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2021 Pinot Noir opens with complex aromas of red orchard fruits, black tea, rose petal and loam. A soft, supple mouthfeel displays elegant flavors of black plum, black cherry, blueberry, and mocha with hints of cedarwood and juniper. The finish is beautifully balanced with lingering notes of earthen fruits. The 2021 Pinot Noir is a perfect match for oven-baked salmon, pork chops with juniper and rosemary, and mushroom risotto.
