Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Metzker is very good. It opens with a cinnamon stick and mild wild strawberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, refined and elegant. The flavor profile is a tasty thyme influenced red plum with hints of gentle oak, tart cherry, blueberry and a dash of black pepper in the background. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This is a pretty wine that would pair very nicely with game bird dishes. I would pair it with Emeril’s oven roasted pheasant with his savory wild mushroom bread pudding. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2016 Terra de Promissio Pinot Noir marks our first reserve tier wine. The fruit tones on the nose are reminiscent of wild blue and blackberries. A presence of toasted oak on the nose builds on the complexity of this wine. The first sip brings a burst of acidity and the soft tannins help carry out the lusciousness of the fruit. Waves of depth and structure transport this wine to a long and seductive finish.
