Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Black Kite was a top performer in a recent blind tasting we conducted. It opens with a very fragrant cherry vanilla-cola bouquet with a hint of cranberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and velvety. The flavor profile is a very tasty red cherry and red plum blend with notes of craisin, clove, and dark chocolate. We also picked up a hint of cola mixed in as well. The finish is dry and its flavors and refined tannins drift away nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this gem with a crown roast of pork with onion and bread-crumb stuffing or a filet mignon. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This is the 10th anniversary release of our beloved Angel Hawk Pinot Noir. Angel Hawk is a small, five-barrel selection of the finest and most age-worthy lots. The 2017 Angel Hawk is an impeccably balanced wine offering a seductive core of luscious fruit wrapped in grainy tannins and refreshed by mouthwatering acidity. Dark plum, cassis and black cherry aromatics are complemented by notes of sweet vanilla, mocha, dried rose and pipe tobacco. The deeply concentrated and vivid palate melds textural resonance with a refined structure that promises many years of fine drinking.
