Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Cambria opens with a new leather and black raspberry bouquet with hints of flinty stone and cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, soft and round. The flavor profile is a tangy black raspberry with notes of cedar, minerality, clove and cinnamon. I also detected hints of craisin and red plum mixed in as well. The finish is dry and its acidity and flavors are nicely prolonged. This Pinot definitely shows better with aeration. Decant it and swirl your glass before pairing it with salmon with a sweet and sour plum and rosemary sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Cranberry, dark cherry, and blueberry fruit aromas and flavors combine with fresh earth and oak spice character, while full yet silky tannins carry from the mid-palate to the finish. Pair with mushroom pate or pasta al Pomodoro with eggplant.
