Earthy & Spicy
Beef > Stew
I would rate this a 88 !!
Surprisingly good for the price.
The aromas are very earthy almost pungent, let it breathe it gets better. Flavors are also very earthy, strong tannins linger. I would drink this alone or with a meal
Have rated this before. Its got a great nose but not a long finish - medium body and very good. Better with food.
I am always worried about pinots under $20. This is a great value wine. Very delightful, especially for the price. Typical Sonoma Pinot, big fruit taste up front, I get cherries and vanilla, nice lingering aftertaste (though a little strong). I'll buy this again.
Earthy & Spicy! Strong oriental spice and sandalwood smell..I would recommend letting it improve and not opening it for the next 2 years.
The taste was not what I expected. It has an earthy smell and feel. The Oriental spice comes through for me.
Light & Fruity
Heavy in acidity without the balance of fruit.
