Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir from Gary's Vineyard was well received by the Tasting Panel. It opens with a fragrant wild strawberry bouquet with hints of red cherry and new oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and delicate with gentle acidity. The flavor profile is a mild strawberry and red cherry blend with notes of mild minerality, a touch of oak and dash of cinnamon towards the end. The finish is long and dry with its flavors lingering nicely. Many Panel members agreed that they could drink a lot of this wine. They suggested pairing it with grilled salmon or herb roasted turkey. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This 50 acre vineyard was planted in 1995 by friends and growers Gary Franscioni and Gary Pisoni along the terraces of the Santa Lucia mountain range, overlooking the Salinas River Valley. With plenty of lovely, rich tannins, this Pinot offers up flavors of dark red fruit, subtle oak and nutmeg-clove spice.
