Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir opens with a fragrant red currant bouquet with hints of vanilla oak. On the palate, this wine is fruit forward, nicely balanced, smooth, and elegant. The flavor profile is a delicious plum with notes of gently integrated old oak. I also detected hints black pepper and anise. The finish is dry and its fine tannins are slightly sticky. This classy Pinot was very popular at our table and would a perfect match with a pork tenderloin dinner. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: An excellent vintage in general, this 2009 Olivet Lane is no exception, fully expressing its classically elegant personality. The stunning aroma is pure and focused - sweet, succulent red and black cherries, with a gentle hint of dark chocolate and spicy oak. The palate yields rich, floral fruit accented by a bit of black licorice, while the supple entry leads to a satisfying, luscious finish.
