Wine Review: This clear and dark red colored Pinot Noir opens with an inviting ripe black cherry, milk chocolate, and blueberry bouquet with hints of blood orange, cranberry, leather, and marjoram. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is soft, smooth, nicely balanced, and bright. The flavor profile is mild tart strawberry and gentle loam blend with notes of black plum. We also detected hints of gravelly minerality, herbal tea, cranberry, and oak. The finish is dry, and its acidity, flavors and tannins are nicely sustained. The Tasting Panel would pair this Pinot with a seared Ahi tuna or with a pork tenderloin. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Exceptionally fresh and vibrant, this Hallberg Vineyard Pinot Noir is a beautiful expression of Russian River Valley fruit. Baskets of just picked black cherries adorned with garlands of roses and violets sweep you away to warm summer days in the valley. Farmer’s market strawberry preserves and cinnamon scones beckon for a longer walk. Mounds of winter citrus arranged upon a platter of wet slate lend zestiness to the palate that is framed with an essence of sweet cedar, nutmeg, and cloves.
