Wine Review: This very dark garnet colored Pinot Noir from Lazy Creek opens with strawberry bouquet with a hint of black cherry and plum. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty mild black plum with notes of black cherry and gentle minerality. I also detected faint hints of vanilla oak. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins fade away nicely. This very nice Pinot would pair well with grilled salmon steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This delicious, sustainably-farmed wine has aromas of blackberry, black cherry, cinnamon, exotic spices and licorice. The flavors are very bright with nice acidity, including dark plum and cherry. Our 2012 Lazy Creek Vineyards Pinot Noir has a rich mid-palate with weight and silky tannins ending with a long finish. Our Lazy Creek Vineyards Pinot Noir is delicious paired with braised meats, fowl, veal, salmon, lobster and prawns.
