A fresh purple red color, this is a voluptuous Pinot Noir with rich fruit notes of cherry, raspberry, plum and strawberry - a red fruit party! - enhanced by subtle smoked hints. In the mouth, sweet fruit notes stand out, and its fine tannins give it a great texture and a mouth-filling structure. Balanced and New World styled, this is a wine of personality and elegance. Sexy, pure and simple, it's a young and refreshing Pinot.
this wine is indeed a good value. And like a lot of other good value's out there it's not particularly interesting. Pinot's under $20 are hard to find and usually lack a lot of interest. This is made in the more jammy style with lots of plum notes, classically mellow, and a very soft finish. for my own particular tastes I'd like to see more acid here with a leaner body (as that's what I prefer in my pinots), however if I could find any such thing under $10 I'd be shocked and amazed. Basically, this IS a very good value and there's no reason to nit-pick. It's tasty. Not flawed in any way. And a damn fine value.
