Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir opens with a black currant bouquet with a hint of black raspberry and smoky oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, silky, and savory. The flavor profile is a very tasty mild black cherry with hints of black raspberry, plum, black pepper, and gentle oak. The finish is dry, subtle, and it drifts away nicely. This Pinot would pair perfectly with cherry amaretto chicken. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2009 Ferguson Block Pinot Noir is medium ruby in color, with a focused nose of cherry, raspberry, strawberry pie, and graham cracker. The palate is incredibly fresh and lively, with cherry, cranberry, raspberry, apple skin, and spicy minerality. Elegant and refined, this is a classically styled pinot noir designed to gracefully accompany a wide range of food pairings.
