Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

This Pinot is dark ruby in color with aromas of spice and dark fruits. The flavor is full bodied, with a long and persistent finish with blackberry fruit that hangs on your palate. It has great aging potential due to concentrated flavor and good acid balance.

Style: Light & Fruity
Very smooth and a very nice Pinot at the sale price. Much better than other cheaper Pinot that tastes terrible.

Alfa Guy - Morrisville, PA (read all my reviews)

Style: Smooth & Supple
Pair with: Roasted Salmon with Balsmic glaze, Berkshire pork chop grilled with garlic ginger soy honey and mango vinegar.
A fine effort, more like 3 1/2, good core of dark cherries, strawberries, with cola and tea. Soft tannins and mild acidity on the finish balance the wine out well. Very good value.

I'm sure the Russian River Valley Pinot WAS great. Unfortunately Wine.com sent me the much cheaper Sonoma Pinot. When I called them on it they said "well there is some Russian River grapes in the Sonoma so its the same thing." Even though the winery sells both a Russian River and a Sonoma. Scam!
