Wine Tasting Notes
The Cherry Pie Tri-County boasts an intriguing color of rich garnet red in the glass. The aromas are bursting with dried black cherry, chocolate raspberry and a touch of cedar. On the palate this wine erupts with bright acidity that melts into layers of Rainier cherry, vanilla bean and baking spice followed by the subtle earthiness of a spring-time forest floor. The velvety and luscious finish ruminates with lingering notes of dark red fruit compote and creme brulee.

Cherry Pie Pinot Noir is made from grapes grown on the Stanly Ranch in the Napa Valley. Now that's a good pedigree, if I do say so. The wine was mainly aged in French Oak, with a small portion being aged in stainless steel. It was not racked or filtered, leaving the wine as pure and whole as it could be.
Stanly Ranch Cherry Pie Pinot Noir pours a gorgeous ruby red with the slightest hints of light brown around the edges, likely from the fact that it wasn't filtered or racked. Aromas are of sugared cherries, raspberries, vanilla, and white pepper leading into an interesting earthiness reminiscent of leather hiding behind the sweet smells. Tasting brings a light-bodied but sensual experience with buckets of overripe cherries, holiday baking spices, hints of damp earth, and a ridiculously interesting savoriness a bit like sweet and smoky BBQ sauce that gives way to a nice bit of lingering meaty umami, and a nice oaky finish.
To say this is a wine to sip, savor, and ponder would be an understatement. It's perfectly balanced and holds strong between the sweet red fruit flavors and the wonderful Pinot Noir savoriness, keeping your attention throughout the entire glass. A wonderful Pinot Noir.
