Wine Review: This is a substantial Pinot for readers who like big styled wines. It is dark ruby colored and opens with a mild red currant bouquet with a hint of red raspberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, well balanced, very concentrated, and rich. The flavor profile is a fruit forward and extracted black raspberry with notes of black pepper and oak in the background. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are nicely prolonged. Our mini-group thought this Pinot went very well with the beef shank tortellini. Yum! Ken

Winemaker Notes: Gowan Creek is the home to our winery and offers a perfect mid-valley winegrowing location that combines warmer Anderson Valley elements with coastal fog and cooling influences from the northern end of the valley. As a result, this wine displays lush extraction and a rich palate with voluptuous red and black fruit layers of raspberry, mulberry, blueberry and huckleberry. This juicy core of berry fruit is supported by excellent tannins and undercurrents of mushroom, herbs, charcuterie, violets and oak.
