Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Martin Ray is very nice. It opens with a mild red raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, elegant and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mild plum with notes of gentle black raspberry. I also detected hints of gentle minerality and a touch of oak. The finish is dry and fades away nicely. This Pinot is very food friendly and would pair well with pork tenderloin. Everyone that tried it liked it a lot. Hurry up and order some from the winery. Only 155 cases were produced. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Juicy cherry, cola nut, savory herbs and Asian spices, with an underlying graphite minerality and a hint of butterscotch from the oak. Full, plush mouthfeel. Dense red fruit up front rounded by the definitive Freestone spice profile, and a lightly oaky finish.
