Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands opens with a red raspberry bouquet with a hint of strawberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a tasty mild black raspberry with a hint of oak, cola and black cherry towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins linger for a while. This very nice Pinot would make a nice pairing with cherry amaretto chicken. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The wine is clear with a transparent ruby red hue. Although this is a lighter hued Pinot Noir, it does not lack for flavor; it has a youthful explosive aroma of cherries and candied red fruit. Exuberant in its nose, it is silky and fine in its textures. This is a very elegant, light and expressive Pinot Noir from a great appellation and wonderful vintage.
