Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot opens with a red raspberry bouquet with a hint of strawberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very well balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a very tasty red raspberry with notes of plum and hints of strawberry, spice, and oak. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins linger for quite some time. The mini tasting group thought this Pinot would pair well with veal marsala. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This dark ruby colored wine has wonderful scents of fruity plum, and strawberry; floral notes suggest a beautiful bouquet of violets. At inception this wine has a firm entry and a good middle body grip. The tastes abound with many flavors….citrus, raspberry cherry and cola. This wine has exquisite texture, excellent follow through and very good length on the finish with silky long tannins on the palate.
