Rich and jammy. As a friend said when I poured it for him, 'this smells more like cab than pinot'. Sweet and unctuous. Cola, spice, and Luxardo cherries.

Dark berries and vanilla notes give way to a subtle and smooth oak finish

No surprise here, this is fantastic. Deep, rich, came out cold. Great pleasure to drink

Floral nose. Loads of some sort of Mediterranean/olive spice. A lot to handle at first, until it opens up.

Agree with some others here. Flabby and other than the nose, this doesn't closely resemble a Pinot. It is pleasant to drink and I can see why people enjoy it but it's a little overdone for me.

Dark like cab, heavy non fruit nose. Dirt, dust, wet leaves. Fruit forward, a touch sweet. Very nice.

The more I drink, the I understand what's going on here. It can't be all Pinot . It has to be blended no?

Lots of flavor for a Pinot. Great with roast fowl.

Wonderful. Highly complex with hints of charred oak and a butterscotch/caramel finish
