Wine Review: This red ink colored Pinot Noir from Sea Sun opens with an inviting black raspberry, black cherry, and black pepper bouquet with floral and earthy notes. On the palate, this California Pinot Noir is medium plus bodied and has a soft, smooth, and round mouthfeel with nice acidity. The flavor profile is sweet cherries, plum, candied fruit, chocolate and cinnamon with vanilla and spice notes. The finish is pleasant and off dry. Though it does have a slightly heavier oomph than some might prefer in their Pinot Noir, I found it enjoyable for its price point. I would recommend pairing with a juicy BBQ pork chop. – Joe

Winemaker Notes: A deep, alluring red, this wine is strikingly soft on both the nose and palate. A rich fruit character wafts from the glass, featuring scents of baked cherries and pie crust. Additional layers come from notes of brown spice and the warm vanilla that signals perfectly integrated, lightly pressed wood. Entry on the palate is bright and fruit-driven, with lush cherry flavors that mimic the nose. Texture is plush and silky smooth, leading into a finish that evokes the taste and feel of milk chocolate.
