Top Notes For
Jarad Moon

2002 vintage, drank 5/9/2015...
Probably a bit past its prime as the coloring was tinting into a touch of burnt orange. Decent legs and bouquet remained. Balanced and not heavily tannic. Excellent daily drinker(especially at the price point) and probably a good option for those who aren't fans of either earthy wines or massive, powerful flavor profiles. Will probably hold up in the rotation with the starter wines like a descent Pinot.
