Wine Review: This pale garnet colored Pinot Noir opens with a fragrant and inviting cola and red cherry bouquet with hints of red currant and red raspberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, smooth and soft. The flavor profile is a tasty strawberry, cola and red plum blend with notes of gentle minerality. We also detected some hints of baking spices, especially nutmeg. The finish is dry and its smooth tannins and flavors linger for quite a while before it drifts away. The Panel would pair this Pinot would pair well with veal rollatini or grilled salmon. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: In 2018, this windswept mountain vineyard produced a beautifully intricate and expressive Pinot Noir with aromas of black cherry, sarsaparilla, vanilla, cedar and rose petal. The ripe cherry notes are echoed on the velvety palate, where they mingle with flavors of black currant, tea leaves and fresh-cracked pepper throughout a long, sumptuous finish.
