Wine Review: This slightly cloudy and ruby colored Pinot Noir opens a black cherry and boysenberry bouquet with hints of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with mild acidity. The mouthfeel is round and lean. The flavor profile is a graphite influenced black raspberry with notes of oak. We also detected hints of black tea mixed in. The finish is rather dry and its dusty fine tannins drift away nicely. I would pair this Pinot with a grilled pork chop. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A wine that captures the entire spectrum of Pinot Noir. Baking spices, white mushroom, dried lavender, plums, cherries and raspberries mingle on the nose and palate with the greatest of ease. The new oak gives a structure that is meant to be decanted or aged before consuming.
