Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir opens with an old oak and black raspberry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is a mild red beet and gentle black plum blend with hints of black currant and old oak. The finish is dry and its mild dusty tannins linger slightly. This Pinot would pair well with pork tenderloin with balsamic raisin stuffing. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2009 Sonoma Coast displays a perfumed delicacy that is immediately appealing, yet belies an underlying richness. Blueberries, fraise du bois and blue violets all effuse from the wine in an ethereal manner. Accents of milk chocolate and creamy wood spices add depth. Disarmingly supple, rich and full with a silky, graceful balance, this Pinot Noir has a sophisticated core of fine-grained tannin and fresh acidity. It will surprise you with its age-worthiness. Delightful with Grilled Scottish Salmon on a colorful bed of basil pesto orzo, surrounded by fried eggplant topped with tomato vinaigrette.
