It is the prototype for wine country living. This Pinot Noir from the winery’s Natasha Block – a 6.6-acre section of Pinot Noir, opens with aromas of blueberry, cherry, Bing cherry and a hint of gaminess. On the palate, it offers flavors of plush black cherry and red plum backed with assertive tannins. It should pair well with pork tenderloin or grilled salmon.
