Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir opens with a wild strawberry and Dr. Pepper bouquet with hints of craisin, cedar, and vanilla extract. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well-balanced, round and quite smooth. The flavor profile is a mild oak influenced strawberry with notes of integrated gentle minerality. We also detected hints of black tea, plum and black pepper. The finish is dry and its moderate soft tannins stick around for quite some time. The Panel suggested pairing this Pinot with beef bourguignon or shrimp and grits. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Aromatically, the wine is boisterous and full of harmony, drawing on every fetching fragrance from the volcanic Red Hills. Equal parts rhubarb, clove, graham cracker, bay leaf, rose water, and carnation sync to provide a layered nose. On the palate, the wine shows fine, cocoa-like tannins with deep, marinated black currant flavors and a savory, dramatic finish. Flexing robust flavor while still offering restraint, this wine is a telling glimpse of a remarkable 2018 vintage.
