Wine Review: This medium garnet colored Pinot Noir from Black Kite opens with a pomegranate, red cherry, and vanilla with hints of dried herbs, and strawberry licorice. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is polished, delicate, smooth, and balanced. The flavor profile is spiced red plum and loam blend with notes of red licorice and dried herbs. We also detected hints of mushroom, raspberry, and refined minerality. The finish is dry, and its moderate tannins are well-managed and stick around for a while. The Tasting Panel would pair this Pinot with a grilled pork chop and grilled salmon. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This is the first Pinot Noir bottling from our family's new "Jasper Freestone" Estate Vineyard near the Sonoma Coast. This is an historic, windswept spot that we discovered is ideal for growing profoundly expressive Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Upon opening, the wine unleashes buoyant notes of Bing cherry, currant and alpine strawberry nuanced by hints of dark chocolate, allspice and caramel. On the palate, mouth filling richness and weight that belies the vineyard's youth give way to a long, concentrated, dark berry and sweet vanilla finish. Enjoy upon release or cellar for up to 7-9 years.
