Wine Review: This garnet red colored Pinot Noir opens with a moderate black cherry bouquet with a hint of cigar box and cedar. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and round. The flavor profile is a very tasty black currant with nicely integrated oak. The panel also detected notes of black cherry and hints of black pepper and anise. This is a pretty complex Pinot from a flavor standpoint. The finish is dry and its tingly tannins linger for some time. The panel suggested pairing this Pinot with slow cooked beef brisket or roast rabbit with grilled vegetables. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Rich, ripe and layered, delivering distinctive aromas and juicy flavors of fleshy black plum & fresh bing cherries laced with dried rose petal, cardamom and ceylon tea. Silky, almost creamy texture, the smooth tannins draw fresh fruit flavors to a long elegant finish. Will continue to improve with three to seven years cellaring from vintage date.
