Wine Review: We enjoyed this wonderful ruby colored Pinot at the Herb Lyceum in Groton, MA. It was a perfect match for our Arctic Char. It opens with a musty old world bouquet with a hint of blueberry in the background. On the palate, it is full bodied, well balanced, and very smooth. The flavor profile is a spicy black raspberry with hints of oak and black pepper. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are nicely prolonged. This wine is a crowd pleaser and is very food friendly. Plan for a couple of bottles with dinner, because your party will certainly want more. Cheers - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The aroma of this intensely focused wine is packed with mouthwatering blueberry, black raspberry and Damson plums. It displays a floral, lupine perfume along with a generous infusion of dark chocolate and its signature dusting of cocoa. Brooding undertones of spice, truffle and toasty oak hint at the restrained complexity waiting to be released with bottle aging. This Pinot literally caresses the palate with its rich, buoyant mouthfeel and lingering finish. A savory pairing for this wine is roasted duck breast on a bed of morels, fava beans, Chioggia beets and baby carrots.
