Pure, clean, bright acidity, and a touch of earthy cola. Every year this is a great buy. Nailed it on salmon night.

Super impressed with this wine. This is well priced and well made Pinot. The crunchy acidity and bright red fruit and partial whole cluster (assuming) jumps out of the glass. This is a joy to drink.

I thought this would be an exceptional Pinot noir but I am disappointed in it. Bright fruit with heavy acidity. Very light which isn’t a bad thing but this wine is lacking. Willing to try other Au Bon Climat wines, but this one isn’t worth it.

Not a big Pinot drinker but this is good. Light bright and a little smoky.

Presents with a beautiful translucent ruby red with a clear rim. Let this wine open up and receive delicious cranberries..pomegranate..bubble gum..cola and gentle baking spices.
I am sure this wine could cellar longer..although enjoyable at this stage!
