Wine Review: Light ruby in color, this Pinot Noir presents with very funky aromas that flash off rather quickly to reveal more appealing scents of olive tapenade, apple skins and seawater. On the palate, the wine is surprisingly round, almost fat. The flavor profile is a juicy strawberry with red raspberry and other bramble fruits. The acidity is appropriate to balance the sweetness, the tannins are soft, and the fruit lasts into an extended finish. This wine would pair well with lighter seafood or poultry dishes. - Jeoff

Winemaker Notes: Aromas of black plum, cherry, rhubarb and hints of earth and loam. Flavors of red plum, raspberry and blood orange are underpinned by distinctive river stone minerality and savory umami character. Plush and richly textured with juicy yet balanced acidity and integrated toasty barrel spice.
