Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir from Tolosa opens with a fragrant red currant and cranberry bouquet with hints of teaberry gum. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a mild oak influenced red plum and pomegranate with notes of fine minerality. We also detected hints of chocolate and strawberry. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate tannins linger for a while. The Panel suggested pairing this wine with a Waldorf salad, shrimp cocktail and pork tenderloin. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The Pacific Wind Pinot Noir is a graceful wine showcasing finesse at its finest and the purest expression of Edna Valley terroir. It is medium ruby red with a magenta hue. On the nose, it features mulling spices, black cherry, and herbal undertones with fresh oregano, hazelnut, and crushed rock. On the palate, it displays blood orange zest, rose petals, with notes of rhubarb, cola, fine grain leather and tobacco flavors. The finish is exhibits vibrant acidity and smooth tannin structure.
