I double checked the label and the price point of this wine after the first sip. Wow! It was really delicious and quite versatille.
I can't wait to try the '07. the '06 was smooth and drinkable. All our friends loved it. we went through two cases. I don't like all the sulfites in the u.s wines and usually avoid them. I usually drink non - US produced reds.
Fruit forward, lighter than the Oregon Pinot Noir. Decanted or not it just did not have enough tannins for me.
