Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir from Calera opens with a black tea and cranberry bouquet with a hint of red raspberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and savory. The flavor profile is a raspberry tea and red plum blend with notes of minerality and light oak. There are hints of strawberry and loam. The finish is dry, and its dusty tannins stick around for quite a while. This wine would be a very nice glass pour at your favorite bistro. I would pair it with a pork tenderloin or beef carpaccio. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This beautifully lush and supple Pinot Noir draws you in with inviting aromas of raspberry, dark cherry, dried sage, and sweet tobacco leaf. On the palate, soft, supple tannins frame alluring layers of wild strawberry and Bing cherry, with hints of cracked black pepper and spice emerging on a long, satisfying finish.
