Wine Review: This opaque dark ruby Pinot opens with a mild black cherry bouquet with a hint of must. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and soft. The flavor profile is a mild black raspberry with hints of spice, oak, and black pepper. The finish is dry and subtle. This Pinot would pair well with chicken marsala. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: On first whiff, our 2007 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir conjures a shower of cascading rose petals, a lovely, floral aroma that gives way with airing to a melange of dark ripe fruit scents (blueberry, boysenberry and black cherry), with earth, chocolate and juniper notes adding complexity. On the full, rich palate, the wine offers layers of deeply concentrated, dark berry, plum and currant fruit flavors bolstered by ripe, seamlessly integrated tannins and a long, chocolate-y finish. Thoroughly delicious now, this "masculine"-style Pinot Noir will become even more voluptuous and complex with another 3-5 years’ bottle aging.
