Wine Review: This pale ruby colored Pinot Noir from Black Kite really impressed the Tasting Panel. It opens with a ripe plum and earthly mushroom with a hint of red raspberry. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied, slightly acidic, soft, smooth and juicy. The flavor profile is stewed plum and spice blend with notes of clove and allspice. The finish is dry and its tannins and flavors are nicely prolonged for a Pinot. The Panel would pair this Excellent Pinot with a wild boar ragu over pappardelle. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Profoundly dark fruited and richly textured, our 2018 Sonoma Coast Angel Hawk opens with a seductive bouquet of black fruits, baking spices and pipe tobacco, with dried florals and mocha dust emerging over time. A lush core of blackberry, plum and raspberry compote expands broadly on the mid palate, gaining mouth filling richness and complexity while retaining good tension from the fine-grained tannins. Berry pie notes persist on the lingering finish, lifted by a touch of acidic verve. Enjoy upon release or hold for up to 12 years.
