The apperance is just a touch clearer than I expect from a good Pinot (2 of 3). An interesting bouquet, but not spectatular. Along with the clarity of appearance, I'm expecting an over-filtered, thin taste (3 of 4).Boy am I surprised! A perfectly well balanced wine with just right acidity and tannins! Does this wine ever deliver the taste! A sophisticated presentation that combines several dynamic tastes leads to a rich body full of texture. The finish is long and complex, earning extraordinary marks (9 of 10). This wine doesn't have the tannins to support more aging, and will never be one of the 'Great Pinots', but it is very drinkable today and a decidely enjoyable wine that I think you can enjoy with many foods or by itself (3 of 4)! I'll keep a case on hand as this is a strong value for under $40! TOTAL: 16 of 20
This pinot deserves its rating and then some. It is unassuming with a screw cap, but this has light body, but real flavor that is missing from many other pinots.
I don't like Pinot Noir but I like this wine.
