Winemaker's Tasting Notes

On the nose, there are floral bouquets and deep notes of black cherry, strawberry jam, cocoa beans, nutmeg and cloves. On the pallet the flavors are fresh and clean with a creamy texture. Raspberry jam, citrus rind, notes of Christmas spices and toasty caramelization will fill the taste buds. The French oak provides plenty of structures which will make the Ketcham Vineyard Pinot Noir age well over time.
