Aromas of spicy berry fruit and earthy oak scents. On the palate muted cherry flavors, big acidity with rustic tannins. Medium finish ending with an oaky herbaceous character, lacks balance. Pass on this one. Tasting Sample.

Musty strawberry notes in the nose. Great fruit in the palate. Short finish.

Tastes like a party tray of Chick-Fil-A nuggets I purchased, brought to a party and got to see/smell but didn’t taste because we had to leave early. Really good, just needs that one more “thing”

light, well made Pinot. fruit is forward, a bit of cotton candy sweet followed by blueberry and vanilla. cinnamon and clove lead to a clean finish. for$12 a nice find.
