Wine Review: This clear medium purple colored Pinot Noir from Siduri opens with a slightly musty stewed plum and cola bouquet with hints of black raspberry and dried herbs. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium-plus acidity. It is also satiny smooth and very fruit forward. The flavor profile is a spiced red plum and red licorice blend with notes of cinnamon and red raspberry. We also detected hints of fine minerality, lavender and some oak in the background. The finish is dry with gentle fine-grained tannins that fade away nicely. This Pinot is food friendly. We would pair it with Food and Wine’s fennel-scented duck breasts with Pinot Noir sauce. Enjoy – Ken and Mark

Winemaker Notes: AROMATICS: Raspberry, strawberry, rose petal and pine resin
PALATE: Boysenberry, black cherry, nutmeg and star anise. Pop of fruit on the entry is lengthened by delicate tannic grip and freshened by pleasant acidity.
