Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot was very well received by our group of tasters. It opens with a mild black currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very nicely balanced, elegant, and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty and food friendly mild black raspberry. There were also notes of plum and a touch of dark chocolate and oak mixed in. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins linger for quite a while. The group thought this would pair nicely with a seasoned pork tenderloin. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Aromas of black cherry, raspberry compote, rose petal, cinnamon and graham cracker set the stage for this elegant wine. Black cherry, cranberry an earthy/forest floor element and a touch of minerality are highlighted by the hallmark acidity found in fruit from this cold climate vineyard. A touch of sweet oak frames it all in nicely and makes for terrific aging potential.
