Wine Review: This delicate style, silky Pinot Noir from Sonoma County is a brilliant cranberry color. The bouquet includes sweet red raspberry, red cherry, dry leaves, garden soil and iris florals. On the palate it is bright and youthful, with a medium body, integrated medium-plus acidity, and is well balanced. There are flavors of red raspberry, gentle oak, mild cherry, light smoke, anise, and river stone minerality. Fine tannins linger for quite a while on the long, dry slightly spicy finish. It would pair nicely with a miso glazed salmon. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: An exciting, yet friendly wine, bursting at the seams with aromas of dried cherry, earthy peat moss and Redwood forest with notes of hyacinth, sandalwood and confectioners sugar. The flavors combine to create a fruit-driven front palate and very subtle oak influence. The finish is bright, with a nice pop of acidity and flavors of tart raspberry and bramble to create great weight for an excellent food wine, as well as a charming drinking experience by itself.
