Wine Review: This light red colored Pinot Noir opens with a cranberry and strawberry jam bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, soft and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty red plum and gentle mineral blend with notes of gentle oak and mild strawberry. The finish is dry and its mild tannins linger for a while. I would pair this very food friendly Pinot with Cioppino seafood stew with gremolata toasts. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: We're loving getting to know our new addition to the DG portfolio. Our 2018 Van Der Kamp Pinot leads with dusky aromas of Bing cherry, plum, and dried sage, along with a perfume of dried purple flowers. With time in the glass, savory/sweet notes of rhubarb and beet join in. In the mouth, it’s robust and sultry, bringing to mind the earth from which it comes. Black cherry is enveloped in spicy sandalwood and black tea, riding on a backbone of tight, fine tannins.
