Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley was well-received by our tasting group. It opens with a very fragrant ripe red raspberry bouquet with hints of red plum. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and quite approachable. The flavor profile is a tasty spiced plum with notes of minerality. I also detected hints of black raspberry and black tea. The finish is dry and its mild tannins drift away nicely. This Pinot is versatile and food friendly. I would pair it with a pork chop. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Aromas of black cherry, allspice, black currant and loam are followed by flavors of wild raspberries, dark berries and a crushed rock minerality. The dense entry is followed by a sweet and juicy mouth feel, supported by acidity, silky tannins and a subtle earthy finish.
