Wine Review: This brick red colored Pinot Noir from Woodenhead opens with a fragrant and inviting black raspberry and strawberry licorice bouquet with hints of red cherry, fresh cut cedar and spiced red plum. I could smell this wine for hours. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, bright, fresh, and juicy. The flavor profile is a red raspberry tea, stony minerality and strawberry blend with notes of cedar and clove. I also detected some hints of mushroom, teaberry, and red licorice. The finish is dry, and its dusty moderate tannins, flavors, and acidity show very good length. I would pair this impressive Pinot with a bacon wrapped pork tenderloin. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: As usual a favorite of our staff here at the winery and that's because of our blending trials involved in the creation of this wine. Clear, bright medium ruby, mild aromatics initially centered on brushy, scrubby and bark components, opening into root beer/cola, plum and cherries. Always changing in the glass. The palate is where this shines, literally screaming in the sense that it fills the mouth and screams fruit with plums, black cherries, subtle earth, licorice and cola. A solid loveable drink me now wine. Tannins are soft grained with the fruitiness and minerality of the acidity standing out. A hint of toasty oak to round it out. Drink this one with your lover …in copious amounts. Outstanding right now! Unfined and Unfiltered.
