Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Kendall Jackson opens with an inviting black raspberry bouquet with hints of black cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, savory and a tad rustic. The flavor profile is an oak and earthy mineral influenced plum and raspberry blend with notes of thyme. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins linger nicely. This good value Pinot benefits from a lit aeration, so decant it and then serve it with coq au vin. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This dark garnet gem delivers bright cherry, strawberry and raspberry fruit with elegant earthy notes infused with cola and mild spice accents. Oak aging adds a hint of vanilla and a soft, toasty finish.
