Grabbed this bottle from my local Kroger this evening to have with dinner. I figured it would be an average price Pinot Noir for the evening. To my surprise this wine has some nice notes. Smooth tannins, with a long finish. You get cherry and black cherry right off the bat. Followed by some blackberry and smoke. For the price this is a good wine. I would give this wine a 3 out of 5 on the total wine scale but for the price a 4 out of 5.
