A bit heavy handed with the oak, which hid the nice acidity and bright fruit. Easy drinking for what it is worth

Fantastic for $20. Drinks like twice that.

Classic and elegant on the nose. Sour cherry and rhubarb, but hardly a fruit driven wine. The oak comes off as authentic and very well done. Good value.

Holler, autumn, you're making yourself heard with this ethere
al #SonomaCoast #PinotNoir, all rose and underbrush and dusty mineral. Plush tannin, velvet-really-velvet texture...like sitting in a plum velvet seat at an opera house. Music sold separate, alas.

Light but fruity - a lot of red fruit and some plums.

Delicate but nicely balanced and perfectly drinkable, with aromas of smoke and leather. Nice introduction to Banshee while I cheer on the Royals in ALDS Game 5.
