Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from Maggy Hawk opens with a milk chocolate and oak bouquet with hints of strawberry, plum and campfire. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty cola and red plum blend with notes of rhubarb, tart cherry and oak. The finish has fine dusty dry tannins that drift away nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this Pinot with a lamb chop. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Wonderful breadth, depth, and personality in spades. Afleet's whole-cluster fermentation and blend of three blocks give it a distinctive tannin structure and subtle earth notes. High-toned red fruit, black fruit, violets and blood orange aromas are grounded in savory bass notes and a solid backbone.
