Wine Review: This wine opens with a pomegranate and dark roast coffee bean bouquet with a hint of black plum. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, juicy and savory. The flavor profile is a red plum and pomegranate blend with notes of ripe black cherry-cola. I also detected hints of oak. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors are nicely prolonged. This Pinot would pair well with sweet brown sugar BBQ meatballs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This wine is still young and somewhat shy when first opened. Given a little aeration, this wine shows aromas of berry patch, mingled with creaminess and toasty spice notes. Helluva Vineyard provides the candied red cherry and cinnamon Red Hot flavors. Our deep end winery estate vineyard contributes raspberry and boysenberry flavors and bright acidity. And our hilltop RSM vineyard adds blueberry, redwood forest notes, and root beer. This elegant and polished wine is full on the palate with smooth milk chocolate tannins and hints of cedar with fresh acidity focusing the fruit and encouraging another sip. Serve with game hens and mushroom gravy or veal saltimbocca.
