Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir from Joseph Phelps opens with a strawberry licorice bouquet with hints of fresh split oak and a touch of raspberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, pleasantly acidic, assertive and juicy. It displays extracted red raspberry and mineral flavors with notes of smoky oak and cherry. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last for a very long time. The Panel felt this Pinot was youthful and would benefit from some time. In the near term, they would recommend decanting and serving it with baked Manitoba farmers sausage with potatoes and carrots. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2014 Pinot Noir showcases aromatic red fruit, fragrant violet and savory spices. Fresh and focused on the palate with concentrated red raspberry and cherry, currant, baking spices and a hint of smoked meat. Nicely textured with firm acidity and a lingering finish.
