Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir from Fess Parker is very good and impressive. It opens with plum and blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a tasty plum and gentle black raspberry blend with hints of mild oak and a dash of black pepper. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins linger for a while. This Pinot is food friendly. I would pair it with lamb kabobs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Scents of blackberry, black cherry, cedar, forest floor, cigar box, sage, sandalwood, vanilla and baking spices on the nose. Layers of black cherry, black currant and cranberry are enhanced by clove and nutmeg and rounded out by vanilla, blackberry and a touch of mineral for a long lingering finish on the palate. Pairs exceptionally with roasted duck, fillet mignon or grilled portobello mushrooms.
