Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from Beaux Freres opens with a black raspberry, rhubarb, and forest floor bouquet with hints of red licorice and gingerbread spices. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with integrated medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, round, rich and dense for a Pinot. The flavor profile is a delicious blend similar to nose featuring black raspberry, rhubarb, black licorice and loam. We also detected some hints of cedar, cinnamon stick, and stony minerality in the mix. The finish is dry, and its flavors and moderate tannins stick around for quite a while. The Tasting Panel would pair this Pinot with duck confit, a charcuterie platter, or with a rack of lamb with rosemary. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Aromatics of potpourri, candied cherry, Asian spice, and incense lift elegantly from the glass. A silky entry point on the palate leads to notions of pure blue and red fruits, fresh fennel, and juicy cranberry, all supporting a depth of connected and composed tannins that deliver a remarkably mouthwatering finish. There is a complex level of tension at its core, indicating a nearly timeless potential for cellaring.
