Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir opens with a red raspberry and black plum bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, savory and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a black plum and old oak blend with notes of minerality and black olive. The finish is dry and its mild oak tannins stick around for a little while. This wine would pair well with a juicy Angus burger with sauteed mushrooms and Swiss. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The wine was aged in seasoned French oak barrels in order that fruit, rather than oak, should dominate; raspberry, plum, dried cherry and toasty oak all for less than $20 a bottle.

Organic status: not organic
