Big & Bold
I really enjoy this wine! I don't know how to pair with foods. I usually drink after I eat. I really love the taste, now that I know how I'm supposed to drink it. I used to drink all wine too cold. So none of them tasted good. I highly recommend this one!!
Smooth & Supple
if you are looking for a pinot noir bottle of wine that won't let you down, given the fact the you spend $9.29 for the world's most difficult wine to make, this is your way to go. It has a clear color, very pinot-noir-like. On the nose, I get the typical pinot noir flavours. Black berries, earthiness or wood-like flavour (whichever makes more sense to you) and a hint of spice. However, this doesn't fully live up to the way it tastes! It is almost unfelt on the midpalate. It doesn't have a lot of character. Sure thing, no tannins (or you may find them if you are a wine expert.) I would recommend this wine to beginners for the sake of expanding palates. But again for a $9.29 pinot noir bottle of wine, this is definitely a steel. I am 87+ on this effort. Happy drinking!
For what you pay for a nice glass of pinot noir in a restaurant, you get a whole bottle of quite enjoyable wine. Not outstanding, but certainly outstanding for the price! We had it with chicken Marsala, and it fit perfectly.
