Jammy sweet. Some red spice. Over the top sweet.

Good for sipping or pairs with food. Tannins perfect for drinking now. Good nose with melon, berry and touch of tobacco.

It was cheap, so I didn't expect much. A lot of disjointed oak that comes out as a hickory smoke with medicinal aromas. Thought there'd be more fruit for something this young but it tastes older, flabby, and cooked with black olive and smoked meat flavors. Grippy tannins with a stemmy finish. Sorry, what varietal was this?

Hey descent California Pinot Noir. Clumsy, a bitch overripe and astringent at the beginning. With air it develops a little better has a good food wine. Not a great Pinot noir

We were concerned that we had held this for too long, but were pleasantly surprised by the smokiness, the silkiness, and all around yumminess of this Pinot.

Blinded by the White! classic pinot nose w/ tricky mid palate weightiness. Lovely. And most certainly not 100% pinot, maybe some zin?
