Medium cherry-red. Floral, candied aromas of raspberry, strawberry and banana, with a hint of bubblegum; Beaujolais-like. Juicy and spicy, with restrained sweetness and a repeating banana note. This reminded me of bug juice at summer camp. Nicely fresh, lean wine with a dry-edged, peppery finish.

Vivid red. Spicy raspberry and candied cherry aromas are deepened by a suggestion of roasted herbs. Lush and supple, with ripe red and dark berry flavors in a straightforward, fresh, easy-drinking package. This is the best version of this bottling I've had in some time.
Vibrant and explosive aromas of roses, cherries and wild strawberries dominate with hints of sweet juice and warm spices. Flavors mirror aromas with strawberries, and cherries dominating complemented
Very Beaujolais-like, and still showing a bit of spritz in the mouthfeel, this offers pretty cherry fruit in a fun, forward, clean and simple style. Note the low alcohol.
The 2009 Pinot Noir Whole Cluster Fermented is light ruby red with a fruity, Beaujolais-like nose that jumps from the glass. On the palate it sports loads of juicy, spicy red fruit with enough acidity for balance. Drink this easygoing, uncomplicated, but pleasure-bent effort over the next 2-3 years. It is a very good value.
As refreshing as liquid fruit salad in a glass, this wine opens with vibrant and explosive aromas of cherry and raspberry that leap from the glass. Flavors mirror aromas of red and dark fruits, hibiscus and melon highlighted by leathery cigar and tobacco overtones. The mouthfeel is soft, juicy and well-rounded with fresh acidity. The velvety tannins focus on a silky mouthwatering finish, inviting the second sip. Meant to drink young. Our Founder, Jim Bernau, calls this wine, “Pinot Noir Candy”. Enjoy now through 2014. Serving Suggestions: This versatile wine is wonderful by itself or with cedar plank salmon, a filet with cherry reduction sauce or salad with dried cranberries and hazelnuts. An excellent addition to your Summer BBQ. For something slightly sweeter, pair with strawberry Crème Brulee.
