Aromas of black fruits and spice. On the palate tart berry flavors overpowered by spice and earthy notes. Harsh drying tannins on medium finish. Not that enjoyable. Pass. Tasting Sample.

Ruby to garnet, ripe cherries and raspberries on the nose with just a hint of spice. This is a really great Pinot for the price with really fresh red cherries and really fruity in the mouth. Similar to the Caymus Meiomi at half the price. Buy some.

Good value Pinot. Nice flavor but got a little thin on the mid palate.

Really light bodied. Short finish. Inoffensive due to lack of flavor. Not worth $9 won't buy again.
