Golden orange pink in color. Strawberry, cherry and peach notes in nose. Peach and cherry flavors in mouth. Fruity, slightly tart, but dry, cherry and slight seed tannin finish. This is a nice, easy drinking Rose, but the same grapes could have gone into a regular red-colored Pinot noir; on some level this is just wrong. But if you must drink Rose, as I did on a warm day in the Arizona desert, this is a superior choice — 6 days ago
Pinot Noir lovers, Adam and Dianna Lee, founded Siduri in 1994, producing only four and a half barrels of Pinot Noir that first vintage. Now they make over 10,000 cases of Pinot Noir. A big wine with full fruit aromas adding the right touch of cedar spice. Palate has black and red berry flavors, adding cacao and sweet cinnamon, soft with a citrus kick. Fine tannins, lingering finish ending with earthy mineral character. Very nice! — 9 days ago
Another fabulous Chanin wine 😍
This PN was a lovely warm up to the crazy 🇦🇺 filet steak @ Cut 45 Park Lane, Mayfair
Didn’t take notes as Mrs Es birthday but it was very aromatic, full of balanced fruits with a lovely smooth long finish 👍
Just love their labels 👏
Bit overpriced @ £150 in restaurant but worth it 😁 I’ll try & hunt now to review properly 😎
Happy Sunday fellow wine lovers 😘 — 13 days ago
Fulcrum Wines Brosseau Vineyard Chalone Appellation Pinot Noir 2011, California
Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.
Fruity nose with blueberries, black plums, cranberries, raspberries, bell pepper, vegetables, herbs, oak, light vanilla, licorice, red candy, earth, spices and light black pepper.
Medium-bodied with medium acidity and long legs. Elegant and smooth.
Dry on the palate with blueberries, cherries, raspberries, leather, light vegetables, mint chocolates, oak, earth, licorice, herbs and black pepper.
Medium finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.
This is a very enjoyable Pinot Noir from the Chalone Appellation in California. Well balanced and very smooth with nice complexity and elegance.
This 7 year old Single Vineyard Pinot Noir is good by itself or with food. Very enjoyable by itself as a sipping wine. Needs an hour to open up properly.
This is not my usual style, but I liked it a lot. A very good quality Pinot Noir.

The label I just photographed says its a zin yet everyone here is calling it a pinot noir, as is the app. The funny thing is that it does taste like more a pinot noir than a zin, label and bottle shape notwithstanding. I lucked out in this case because it was really a pinot that I wanted in the first place. Limited on this occasion to one nearby grocery store and one liquor store which really focuses more on ctaft beer than wine, this zinfandel was about the only red that met my standards of label, origin and price. — 7 days ago
11’ Sea Smoke Ten.
A bit nervous when I pulled the cork. It’s fine.
Decant is still a must. The acidity dissipated after an hour.
Color- Nose- palate - finish. Pretty aromas of bright cherry & blackberry are accented by toastiness from the French oak.
The elegant aromatics give way to fruit flavors of MORE big Cherry, plum skins, ripe raspberries 👍,dusty nutmeg in a silky, seamless textures. While the fruit forward characteristics are quite noticeable...(bit short on the back of the palate)
Hard to put down the glass though!
Love Sea Smoke TEN. Edit- So much better after the 2nd hour. finishing with much more length. — 4 days ago
Goddamn I love Dragonette. Was tasting other pinots out so wanted to compare. This one reeks of cherry jam. And a wee bit of mushroom and happiness. A whiff of the oak—baking spices. But the body holds true to the less tannins more acid profile one would expect. I’ve had Dragonette pinots I’d prefer but this is damn yummy. — 15 days ago
