Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir opens with a pomegranate and black raspberry bouquet with hints of tarragon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, round and savory. The flavor profile is a concentrated stewed plum and black raspberry blend with notes of oak and a hint of cherry-cola. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate tannins have very nice length. This Pinot would pair very nicely with tagliatelle with wild boar ragout and pecorino di pienza. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: We love how this wine shows its sense of place, smelling and tasting so much like the area it’s from. Coastal redwood duff and wild bramble berry aromas lead the way, with deep and plush candied berry compote luring you in to the glass for the first sip. The mouth is dense and lush, with layers of blackberry and black raspberry enfolded by sandalwood and a hint of herbs de Provence. Sweet berry pie notes linger on the extended finish. Big and bold, this is a wine that wants equally outgoing foods, like tea smoked duck breast or venison and wild mushroom stroganoff.
