Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir from Beaulieu Vineyard opens with a cinnamon and ripe black raspberry bouquet with hints of mushroom, violet and turned earth. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, robust, and rich for a Pinot. The flavor profile is pomegranate and black raspberry tea with notes of oak and stone dust. We also detected hints of light loam, black pepper, and faint red plum. The finish is dry, and its flavors and moderate dusty tannins are nicely prolonged. The Tasting Panel would pair this Cab drinkers Pinot with sausage stuffed mushroom or with beef tenderloin carpaccio. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The Reserve Pinot Noir is vibrant and garnet in color with aromatics bursting from the glass. An abundance Bing cherry, pomegranate, and cranberry mingle with hints of nutmeg and hazelnut. The palate offers a delightful interplay of flavors, with prominent raspberry and black tea intermingling undertones of fresh earth, sage, and toasted vanilla. The acidity is streamlined and provides balance to the pronounced but approachable tannin structure, making it a perfect choice for pairing with dishes such as roasted pork. This Pinot Noir can be enjoyed for years to come, with an age ability suggested until 2035.
