Wine Review: This translucent and dark red colored Pinot Noir opens with a mild black raspberry and plum bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with mild acidity. It is balanced, very approachable and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a black plum and cherry blend with notes of oak and minerality. Hints of clove and blueberry. The finish is dry, and its flavors, and mild tannins linger nicely. This Pinot not overly complex but it will be a crowd pleaser. It paired well with hunter pork schnitzel with mushroom gravy. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Made from a handful of the finest vineyards on the Central Coast, this Pinot Noir displays alluring aromas of ripe black cherry, raspberry, sandalwood and orange zest. On palate the flavors turn dark and luxurious, with layers of blackberry jam and cassis gliding across supple tannins to a lingering cedar and spice finish.
