Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir opens with an attractive strawberry and black raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a very tasty black cherry with notes of beautifully integrated oak and black raspberry. The finish is dry and its fine tannins are rather elegant. This wine would pair well with cherry amaretto chicken. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Bright and detailed aromas of black cherry, red raspberry and autumnal spices introduce this complex and intense Pinot Noir. On the palate, the wine's juicy mouthfeel is supported by centered acidity building with intensity through the mid-palate, and on to fine grain tannins at the finish. Balanced and precise, this Pinot Noir drinks well upon release, improving with bottle age and drinking beautifully for five to eight years.
