Okanagan Valley Pinot Noir 2021

On the nose, this is has some funk of alcohol and a nice cherry aroma... Smoke. On the palate, this tastes more like cranberry with all the sourness that entails... Lip smacking at first... Some pepper coming through... A touch on the acid side... A satisfying medium finish with again some pepper. — 6 months ago
