Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir from Emeritus opens with a fragrant dried strawberry bouquet with hints of red plum and dried herbs. On the palate, this wine is light plus bodied with plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, and bright. The flavor profile is dried strawberry and raspberry blend with notes of oak. We also detected hints of stony minerality, pomegranate, and dried herbs. The finish is dry, and its flavors and acidity are very nicely extended. The Tasting Panel would pair this Pinot with an Irish lamb stew. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Made from two highly prized clones of Pinot Noir grown on the western side of Pinot Hill, this captivating wine strikes a terrific balance between fruit, oak, alcohol, and acidity. On the palate, cool waves of black raspberry and bramble fruit are revealed, as well as subtle hints of walnuts, herbs, and honey. As it opens up, a softer, melted quality emerges that is both exotic and unctuous, as if the wine is beckoning you to put your feet up and let go. For an ideal drinking experience, serve this opulent wine 5-10 degrees below room temperature.
