Wine Review: This opaque and a very dark purple colored Pinot Noir opens with a mild blackberry and gentle oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a toasty oak infused black currant with a hint of blackberry and plum. The finish is dry and its oak notes linger for quite some time. This wine pairs perfectly with grilled shrimp with a cognac and Thousand Island dipping sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: 2010 produced Pinot Noirs of great complexity and exquisite balance. The nose opens with lovely spicy aromas of sassafras and anise, over rich layers of black cherry, cloves and cocoa that echo the palate. A lingering impression of baking spice and espresso give a pleasing weight to the supple finish.
