Ruby color, slight purple edges, with aromas of red fruits, forest floor and smoky spice. On the palate flavors of cherry and raspberry with cedar notes, tea, cola, black pepper, cinnamon spice and earthy herbs. Full-bodied, fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit, oak and a spicy earthy character. Pair this with a grilled salmon or pork chop!

Ruby/purple color. (Dark for a Pinot Noir) Beautiful dark berry aromas with hints of spices, salami and roasted herbs. Bold on the pallet with bright blackberry and black cherry fruit with notes of baking spices and earth. Great length and balance. Powerful! Tasted this blind with friends and they could not believe that this was a Pinot Noir. Is there another varietal blended in? Regardless, this wine is outstanding! Thanks for the bottle Kasey and Pete!
