Winemaker's Notes

A ruby red in color. Aromas of sweet strawberry, rose petal, and tomato vine are subtle and highlighted by mushroom nuances. The fruit forward flavors of ripe cherry and strawberry are delivered with a smooth mouthfeel and lingering silky tannins.

I have not been a big pinot noir drinker because I don't usually have the budget for a good one. My standby has been Wild Hog's $25 bottle. I recently saw a Wine Spectator that praised Greg Norman wines, so I took a chance on a sub-$15 bottle of the pinot noir. I found a smooth, but short finish on a very strong black cherry with hint of blackberry. I must have tried it too soon after pulling it from the cellar, because the finish lengthened on the second glass. It went very well with a home grilled filet mignon, baked potato and steamed brocolli dinner. I need to give this wine more attention and I'm certain to give this winery more business.

I first had this wine at a Gregory Norman restaurant while on a vacation in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I liked it so much, I ordered a case the next day.
