Wine Review: This medium ruby colored Pinot Noir opens with a boysenberry and black cherry bouquet with hints of moist peat moss, wild mushrooms and black plum. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and soft. The flavor profile is a tasty crushed stone, tart cherry and toasted oak blend with notes of red plum. We also detected hints of dried herbs. The finish is dry and drifts away nicely. The Panel would pair this Pinot with roasted quail with Pinot Noir sauce or with cast iron pan-roasted chicken breasts. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Aromas: Choke cherry, sassafras, lavender, milk chocolate and peppermint.
Flavors: Pomegranate, shitake mushroom, black pepper, molasses and leather.
Texture: Wound like a spring with red to blue fruit notes on the mid palate, cleansing acidity and vibrant tannins on the finish.
