Wine Review: This light ruby colored Pinot Noir from the Russian River opens with a red raspberry, cherry, and red currant bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, it is light to medium bodied, well balanced and nicely built. The flavors are red raspberry and cherry with nicely integrated smooth tannins along with some pleasant acidity, minerality and a touch of oak. We would pair this Pinot with Thanksgiving dinner. We also found it was even tastier on the second night, so pair with turkey sandwiches as well. – Stuart and Karen

Winemaker Notes: The 2014 Estate Russian River Valley Pinot Noir has lovely aromas of red fruit, floral and earth. With a soft and silky texture, on the palate cherry, cranberry, and baking spice characteristics shine through with balance, acidity and a nice lingering finish. This medium bodied wine was aged for 15 months in small French oak barrels, which added a hint of toasty vanilla and spice complexity. Enjoy this Pinot Noir now with gruyere cheese and charcuterie, wild mushroom pizza or slow roasted pulled pork or cellar it for enjoyment for the next 2 to 4 years.
