Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from the Anderson Valley opens with a fragrant black raspberry bouquet with a hint of cola and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, juicy and fruit forward. The flavor profile is an extracted black raspberry with notes of black tea and oak. I also detected a hint of black pepper and black plum. The finish is dry and subtly fades away. This Pinot is pretty quaffable and goes down easy. I would pair it with grilled arctic char. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: In 2015, our vines set a light crop with small berry size, consequently a higher percentage of the wine was aged in new barrels; almost 40% of the blend went into new oak rather than our typical 30%. Big and concentrated with flavors of dark plum and cherry with a touch of toffee and leather; great with fresh or smoked salmon.
