Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Burgundy opens with a mild black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced with rounded edges and rather bright. The flavor profile is a black cherry and gentle plum blend with notes of clove and black pepper. I also detected hints of oak and a touch of loam. The finish is dry and its fine tannins and flavors drift away nicely. This wine is drinking very nicely right now. It is easy to quaff. I would pair it with veal medallions with mushroom-wine sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Tasting Note: On the nose, aromas of black berry fruit. This full-bodied wine is underpinned by lovely tannins that give it its character.
Food/Wine Pairing: Grilled or marinated red meat, game, medium-flavored cheeses.
