This is made from grapes grown near the Lake Erie shore in northeastern Ohio. It is cooler climate in style. Of course, Pinot Noir is difficult to make anywhere, and this one is not only varietally correct, it is good. Ruby in color with a few daker swirls, clear and bright. The nose has cherries, rhubarb, slight herbal note, and a bit of spice. Medium bodied. On the palate, this has lighter red fruits (think Pomegranate and Rhubarb) with a bit of cherries. Moderate finish. It will probably work better with food; Salmon, of course, but fried chicken would be nice. Drink over the next five years.
