Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Oregon opens with a funky and flinty mineral and plum bouquet with hints of coffee grounds and violets. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty stewed black plum with notes of light oak and minerality. We also detected hints of black cherry and cola mixed in. The finish is dry and its soft flavors drift away nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this Pinot with a pork tenderloin. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The nose is a vibrant mixture of red berries, rhubarb, vanilla essence and clove. Crunchy cranberries and vibrant purple fruits fill the palate and are complemented by a savory truffle nuance. The palate is opulent but focused and the wine feels alive throughout its impressive length. Possibly the best Two Messengers made to date.
