Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir opens with an oak and black raspberry bouquet with hints of pomegranate and wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with fresh plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, bright, and mouthwatering. The flavor profile a tasty, spiced plum and pomegranate blend with notes of oak and earthy loam. I also detected hints of raspberry tea and tart cherry. The finish is dry, and its moderate dusty tannins linger and last for a while. This Pinot benefits from aeration. I would decant it before serving it with a wild boar bouquet. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This gorgeous Pinot Noir opens with seductive aromas of cherry liquor, sweet tobacco, fresh fennel, rose petal and boysenberry preserves. The broad, youthful, tangy, yet complex palate offers juicy flavors of blood orange, sour cherry jam, tamarind, raspberry jerk sauce, with a hint of savory green plantains. The firm tannins and tangy acidity create a full-bodied texture, lending to the incredibly long, spicy finish.
