Wine Review: This slightly cloudy and dark red colored Pinot Noir from Martha Stoumen opens with a pleasant rose petal and red raspberry bouquet with hints of strawberry and pomegranate. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, smooth, and fresh. The flavor profile is a mild red plum and gentle stony minerality blend with notes of red currant and mild clementine. I also detected some hints of strawberry and rhubarb in the aftertaste. The finish is dry, and its refined tannins and flavors fade away nicely. I would serve this easy drinking and crowd-pleasing Pinot slightly chilled on a warm day with friends on the porch. With food, pair this versatile Pinot with a roasted beet salad with bacon and goat cheese. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Sidle up to aromas of breakfast tea and orange peels drying in the sun. Planted in the 1960's, these dry-farmed vines show us what's possible with Mendocino fruit. This particular Pinot is the perfect companion for whittling small gifts from birch bark, getting past the small talk, and processing your plum harvest.
