Wine Review: This deep ruby colored Pinot Noir opens with a flinty minerality and craisin bouquet with hints of red raspberry, strawberry and cinnamon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, smooth and juicy. The flavor profile is a slightly tart red plum with notes of stony minerality and red raspberry. We also detected some hints of vanilla and oolong tea mixed in. The finish is dry and gritty mild soft tannins linger nicely. The Panel would pair this Pinot with thin sliced roast lamb, beef carpaccio or soft cheese. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Our 2018 Emerald Ridge Pinot hits all the texture-fruit-spice-floral notes, with its juicy, plush blueberry fruit framed by sandalwood and lavender. While it’s opulent, it also has a fresh lift and energy to the aromas. The wine follows through in the mouth, with a broad and enveloping wash of rich blueberry, boysenberry, and black cherry. The basket of fruit is carried on round but firm black tea tannins, which, combined with the harmonious balance of the wine, promises a lengthy future. Serve with savory dishes like herbed pork or fowl, pasta with mushrooms and prosciutto, or with gruyere and Manchego cheese.
