Bought this for $9.99 on-line out of curiosity. Rated 90 pts by WE. 94% Pinot Noir and 6% Syrah. I brought this to a Christmas party for a friend to try. He's enjoyed Pinot Noir/Syrah blends in the past. This one is mostly Pinot Noir but I thought it was worth a try. We opened this and let it stand for about 1 hour before tasting. Light ruby color and very thin (watery looking). Root beer scent prominent and on the palate was very strange. I did not enjoy this wine at all. Don't get me wrong, I like root beer. Just not in my wine (I guess). Also, this did not taste like any pinot noir that I have had before. If I had tasted this in a blind tasting, I would have guessed it was a red blend, not a true pinot noir. I was disappointed in this wine after reading others' reviews that really enjoyed this. Would not buy again. There are better true pinot noir out there for this price point.
