Halloween fondue frenzy. Pretty. One of the wines of the night.

In your face cherry and plum with notes of rhubarb and pomegranate. Balanced yet bright acidity. Earthy components of forest floor and gravely minerality mingle with toasted hazelnuts an cola on the long silky finish. Smooth but chewy tannins.

Big ole Pinot Noir with fruit forward nose and taste. Very nice on the palate with smooth aftertaste. Exactly what I want in a Pinot Noir.

Spontaneous decision to hit Prairie School in its final days for a quick cocktail and one-of-a-kind ceramic mug (or two) ... following we drank Pinot at home with burgers (when was the last time we drank on a school night?!). And the wine? Great minerality. Highly recommend.
