Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir opens with a fragrant strawberry bouquet with a hint of oak and red cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and a little juicy. The flavor profile is an oak influenced mild cranberry and red plum blend with hints of red currant and red cherry. The finish is dry and its mild tannins and flavors fade away nicely. This Pinot is very food friendly and it would pair perfectly with pork tenderloin. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A floral bouquet on the nose consisting of honeysuckle, orange, rose hips and peach. Playing off the floral notes are exotic wood spice and wet stone. Once in the mouth, this wine is a ride first showing layers of strawberry, cherry and cranberry until you’re seduced by salted caramel before you finish with hints of tobacco, green tea, river rock and spice. Drink upon release. Should cellar through 2023.
