Wine Review: This Pinot opens with a red currant bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mild black currant with hints of plum and gentle oak. The finish is dry and pleasant. I found this Pinot to be very food friendly and a great value. I would pair it with cherry amaretto chicken. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Forrest floor, Raspberry and dried cherries, dominate the nose with hints of mushroom, dried herbs and mint. The sweet fruited entry is joined by flavours of vanilla, cedar and dried cherries. This medium bodied wine has an attractive viscosity and fine tannin structure. The winemaker has delivered a cheerful and accessible Pinot Noir.
