Notes of cheap alcohol and harsh tannins. No resemblance to Pinot Noir. Or wine.

Underrated! A very drinkable wine for a reasonable priced Pinot. And Kosher no less.

Not what I would consider a true or standard expression of Pinot, it actually tastes more like a soily Merlot blended with a grape that has a more juice black berry and plum profile like a Syrah or grenache. Also there is a hint of dates in the flavor as well. Interesting wine. Not necessarily going to hit the spot if you're looking for traditional Pinot but good for something different, very drinkable and enjoyable in its own right.

This delightful Pinot Noir served in Kosher restaurant in LA. Floral bouquet. Smooth not overly dry. Cherry and chocolate aftertaste.

Nice dark fruity flavor, light enough for drinking without food.

Dirty ruby /brown in color with a light red wide rim.

Terrible on the nose with Barnyard, cherries, strawberries, plums, blackberries, beef jerky, green pepper, asparagus and white pepper.

Full-bodied but not bold, with medium acidity.

Fruity on the palate with cherries, strawberries, blueberries, earth, pencil lead, oak, cloves, licorice and light black pepper.

Medium Plus on the finish with extremely soft tannins and a bad aftertaste.

Not a great wine, almost reaching average. Nothing special, and I did not like the nose at all. Drinkable, though.

My first Israeli Pinot Noir, and not a good start. An entry level series, but that's what you can get in the U.S. stores.

13% alcohol by volume.
