Wine Review: The opaque and very dark purple colored Pinot Noir opens pleasant plum bouquet with a hint of blackberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well balanced and smooth. Its flavor profile is a mild plum with notes of minerality. I also detected a hint of blackberry and smoky oak towards the back of the palate as well. The finish is dry and its fine tannins are gentle and friendly. This wine is food friendly and would pair well with beef bourguignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: On first impression, the wine is the color of a brightly polished garnet, reflecting its fine-boned elegance. The appealing aroma is a medley of summer fruits - raspberries, fraises du bois, blackberries and currants. A touch of savory, warm brown spice and a woodsy character add charm. Silky, lush and vibrant, Georganne pleases the palate from the first sip. In honor of Georganne's release, I came up with a new dish (Angel Hair Pasta with Smoked Salmon). My goal was to accentuate both the wine's elegance and earthiness.
