Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Oregon is very good. It opens with a red cherry bouquet with a hint of strawberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mild cherry with nicely integrated minerality. I also detected hints of plum and strawberry. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins linger and last for quite some time. I would pair this impressive Pinot with a pork tenderloin. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Brambly and brooding with aromas of plum tart and saddle leather that accompany hints of lavender. Lush flavors of blackberry compote, cassis and blueberry are tempered by dusty notes of cocoa nibs and refined tannins.
