Not the biggest fan. Deeper and richer fruits than I like. Stewed raspberries.

Raspberry pie!
A hungering aroma.
Vanilla bits, raspberry seed, touches of scone like yeastiness. Then in the tiniest amounts, those classic twigs and branches.
Long lingering finish as the lively bergamot acidity plays with the oak.
Certainly worth drinking.

Note to winemakers: Please stop wrecking my wine tools with: Synthetic cork, Wax cork toppings, and Wax coverings.. I want what’s inside. If you make it too hard, I will not bother buying it.

Not my favorite vintage of this, but still a great value. Was better on day 2.

Very aromatic with notes of plum, red raspberry and ripe plums. This wine is extremely delicious and drinkable. With some more aging this wine will be even more beautiful.

Nice, lighter bodied Pinot Noir. Red fruit and cola.
