Wine Review: This bright black cherry colored Pinot opens with a spicy black cherry like bouquet with a hint of truffles. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and displays very tasty black cherry flavors with a hint of menthol. The finish is quite dry and its well managed tannins are persistent and long. This Pinot would pair quite nicely with pork tenderloin. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: From our Russian River Terrace vineyard located in close proximity to the river. This is an elegant and seductive 100% Pinot Noir. Deep in ruby red color with a distinct Burgundian fragrance. Combines firm velvet structure with flavors of black cherry, cinnamon, clove and a hint of cola. Aged 18 months in 50% new 228L French Oak barrels Lightly filtered prior to bottling. This 07 Pinot pairs well with lighter meats of pork, veal, poultry, salmon and cheese.
