Pretty good for a CA Pinot, but a little too much fruit and heat for me. Still, it was good enough to make me wonder why I don’t drink Pinot more often, and it paired quite well with pork tenderloin.

Looks very young, having the appearance of clear and pale ruby color. On the nose, it is clean with medium intensity. Being able to smell flavor of strawberry jam, smokiness, light plum, mushroom, floral, light pepper. On the palate, there is no sweetness, medium to high acid, very low tannin, strong alcohol, tasted light overall. Medium to long finish with taste of fig at the end. Is a good wine. The fly in the ointment is the lack of tannin, feeling more like a juice.

Reminds me of a summer wine Pinot, evening by the pool style. Nice watering acidity and cherry, pomegranate, and very light olive. As it settles it gets a little sweeter and some floral notes really stand out.

Full bodied. To say the least.
Drank this with absolutely nothing to go with it and I’m still smiling.

Had at Norman’s. Tastes expensive. Norman said it is highly recommended and is only $22

Too strong for Pinot Noir. Strong berry flavors. Good balance. 2015 too young
