Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Light Ruby with aromas of red fruit and spice. The palate shows red fruit, raspberry and strawberry with light pepper spice. The wine was medium body and finishes with slight oak notes, about medium in length. Ok but not great. Tasting Sample.

Lovely light maroon to purple-red color. Not a whole lot on the nose. Berries and a hint of spice. Little herbal, Indian curry spice. Flavor is nice. Pretty smooth. Little bite on the backside. Cherry and black pepper. Maybe roasted hot pepper too. Was a nice match for Christmas dinner of turkey with all the fixins. Didn’t scream for attention and brought out the flavors of the cranberry sauce and side dishes.

Wine #7 of our Advent Calendar. 2014 Pinot Noir. Good. Light fruit. Little alcohol taste at the end.

Smooth drinking Pinot Noir, bright fresh fruit on the nose. Crisp yet not acidic, going great with food. Very juicy. Not a long linger.
