Wine Review: This pale ruby colored Pinot Noir opens with a dried twig, nutmeg and red raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light plus bodied, balanced and gentle. The flavor profile is iron filings and stewed plum with notes of oak. We also detected hints of dried herbs, oolong tea and raspberry, orange zest. The finish is dry and its earthy and fruit blended flavors linger for quite a while. We would pair it with venison stew. Enjoy – Ken and Dave

Winemaker Notes: This is a powerful vintage with a deep red color. On the nose, there is immense perfume of sandalwood, damp earth, violets and red raspberry. The palate frames layers of red fruit flavors with bright acidity and modest tannins. The overall complexity and generosity are beguiling. This wine displays the potential of the variety going back to the Burgundian, Paul Masson and his pivotal Pinot Noir planted in 1900.
