Wine Review: Our mini group of tasters thought this Pinot was food friendly. It is ruby colored and opens with a mild red currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy going. The flavor profile is strawberry rhubarb with some mild red currant mixed in. The finish is dry and lingers slightly. This Pinot is fun and would pair well with cherry amaretto chicken in a puff pastry. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2007 Fogdog Pinot Noir has a very pronounced perfume of sour cherry compote with layers of cinnamon, spice, black tea and wet earth. The 2007 vintage was fantastic for the production of concentrated Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. The warm weather in early September followed by a 12-day cooling spell allowed for longer than expected hang time. These conditions yielded small berries, hardened stems and loads of concentration. Slow fermentation with approximately 20% whole clusters on average produced a wine with concentration, balance and tremendous aromas that excite the nose before the first sip is taken.
