Wine Review: This light red colored Pinot opens with a fragrant strawberry and red raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this Pinot is medium bodied, well balanced, and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a jammy strawberry and raspberry blend. I detected a dash of black pepper as well. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for a while. I felt this is a very good Pinot to drink on its own because it has so much flavor. If you like this fruit forward, jammy style you need to give it a try. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Garnet in color this Pinot Noir is a real treat to the senses with luscious aromas of blackberry, and hints of mineral and leather. At first taste you will find an array of red fruit including cherry and berry. A round mouth feel with excellent body and texture this wine has a fantastic balance. You will find the ending a real treat with a long finish of ripe bing cherries.
