Wine Review: This ruby-colored Pinot Noir from Elk Cove is very good. It opens with an appealing black raspberry bouquet with hints of graphite and clove. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, refined and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mild mineral, cherry and plum blend with notes of black pepper and a touch of cola. The finish is dry and its subtle refined tannins drift away nicely. I would pair this Pinot with braised rabbit with spring vegetables. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Candied aromas of kirsch and fresh raspberry jam counter-balanced by dark notes of toffee and fresh tobacco. Fresh blackberry and red plum on the palate play against a ferrous background of orange peel and licorice notes that add interest to the clarity on the finish.

Organic status: not organic
