Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast opens with a pleasant strawberry bouquet with hints of pomegranate. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and savory. The flavor profile is a tart plum and pomegranate blend with notes of oak. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for a little bit. This Pinot is very food friendly and would pair well with grilled salmon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A forward aroma of fresh blueberries, violets and sweet plums is balanced by savory truffles, reminiscent of the forest floor. Scents of raspberry liqueur, dark currants and cherry jam broaden the fragrance. Creamy oak adds highlights nutmeg, powdered cinnamon and star anise. The firm acidity of the palate makes this a natural to pair with rich dishes. The finish is long and persistent with a complex touch of minerality. This elegant wine will reward both the eager consumer and those with the patience for cellaring.
