Wine Review: This bright ruby colored Pinot from Carneros opens with a pleasant and fragrant strawberry bouquet with a hint of red raspberry and some earth tones. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, slightly acidic, and savory. The flavor profile is a spicy plum with notes of black pepper and a touch of oak and strawberry rhubarb. The finish is dry, a touch hot, and its flavors linger nicely. The consensus of the panel was this Pinot would pair well with blackened grilled salmon or goat cheese. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2011 Stemmler Carneros Estate Pinot Noir is pale ruby in color, with aromas of Bing cherry, sage, sous bois, and just-ripe blackberry. The palate is red-fruit driven, with strawberry, cranberry and cherry flavors joined by orange peel, toast, and mineral notes. Light-bodied with spicy, fresh-fruit flavors, the wine gains intensity on the palate, finishing with dark berry and earthy flavors.
