Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Joseph Phelps open with a gentle cherry, strawberry, and cola bouquet with hints of stewed plum and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with plus acidity. The flavor profile is a juicy spiced red plum and mineral blend with notes of red raspberry with hints of strawberry and cranberry. The finish is dry and its tannins lingered nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this Pinot with mushroom and asparagus risotto, sushi, or grilled pork. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2018 Pinot Noir highlights fragrant violet, rustic baking spices and cedar notes followed by juicy raspberry, black cherry and hints of red currant. Focused and youthful with a lifting acid length, black pepper spice and orange peel essence.
