Wine Review: This deep garnet colored Pinot Noir from Oregon opens with a blueberry and gentle cinnamon bouquet with a hint of mushroom and cedar. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and very approachable. The flavor profile is a crushed stone and gentle red plum blend with notes of cinnamon, oak, and mushroom. We also detected hints of pleasant red cherry. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this Pinot with cedar plank grilled salmon or a juicy lamb burger. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Aromas: Blue raspberry candy, soy sauce, lilac, wet soil, tamarind, Earl-grey tea, and blood orange.
Flavors: Tangerine, pomegranate, sassafras, saffron, pipe tobacco, spruce tips, and Himalayan blackberry.
Texture: Lively acidity up front with energetic and youthful tannin structure. The mid palate transitions seamlessly into a long and dark fruit driven finish. Acidity pulls forward off the finish creating a perfect paring opportunity for rich earthy foods.
