Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir from Gary Farrell opens with a very fragrant red cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced and gentle. The flavor profile is a gentle black plum and mild mineral blend with notes of oak and some hints of red currant and lingonberry. The finish is dry and its gentle tannins are nicely prolonged. We did detect a touch of heat at the very end on this one, but it did not detract. We would suggest pairing this Pinot with duck breast with a pomegranate-citrus glaze. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Lush aromas of dark cherry, currants, and cola naturally follow the deep ruby hue of this wine in glass. Dried mushrooms, black tea, and an array of fresh violets, rose petals, and a hint of peppermint provide complexity and intrigue. Exceptional palate weight coupled with a tremendous concentration of fruit flavors and zesty acidity deliver a balanced package of power and finesse.
