This is a nice juicy Pinot, with sweet and sour cherries and cola flavour. It's tangy on the palate, like a fresh fruit juice. Perhaps a bit pricy but then again it from CO - the ends of the earth, so I'll pay my respect.

Light, easy on the pallet. Sweet aftertaste. Light aroma. Bouquet not too strong.

Good value for the price. More full bodied & robust than most Pinots. Will buy again.

Good but not great. Especially note worth the $34 price tag.
