Young but tasty. Good nose. It was a gift so not sure of the price point. But I’d purchase it. 2014 on 1/13/18

Nice Pinot. Dark fruit notes that are not very forward. The earthiness is noticeable. Good balance on the palate. Very pleasant.

Attractive earthy complexity mingles with woodsy oak spice (no vanilla) atop the ripe red fruit. The 14+% abv sticks out awkwardly, particularly on the finish.

Very happy.......cool; cherry-like fruit. Soft and well rounded with a hint of tartness on the finish. Strongly encouraged....
