Wine Review: This bright red Pinot Noir from Twomey opens with a fragrant red raspberry and pomegranate bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused red raspberry with notes of ripe wild strawberry. I also detected a hint of gentle cedar. The finish is dry and subtly drifts away nicely. I would pair this very nice Pinot with a cedar plank salmon. Enjoy - Ken
