Wine Review: This pale ruby colored Pinot Noir from Goldeneye opens with wild strawberry, cinnamon, and ripe red cherry bouquet with hints of cedar and violet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is smooth, round, and very well-balanced. The flavor profile is a delicious blend of red plum and stony minerality with notes of spice and red raspberry. We also detected some hints of cola and licorice towards the end. The finish is dry and its fine tannins linger and then drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this Pinot with a filet mignon or with a wild pheasant in mushroom and wine sauce. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Pure, poised and beautifully energetic, this vibrant Pinot Noir offers sophisticated aromas of cranberry sauce, wet stone minerality and freshly cut oregano, with subtle hints of vanilla and brown sugar from aging in the finest French oak. On the palate, supple, mouthcoating tannins and bright acidity frame the generous layers of wild summer strawberry and ripe raspberry, with hints of saddle leather emerging on the long, velvety finish.
