I've had other styles by this producer and was mightily impressed. This time, not so much. It's dark and fruity, but a little too brash for Pinot Noir, IMHO. I like mine a little more elegant.

Starts with light herbal aromas of rose, popouri and strawberry with a whiff of earthy tobacco. Mild tannins with minimal sweetness. Unfortunately the pallate is slightly overwhelmed by the acidity & alcohol but hints of wild blueberry and clove make it through. However, it definitely improved as the wine decanted for an hour allowing more fruit to shine through. Paired with Cornish game hen with rosemary stuffing. ($7)

Trending toward cherry juice with some nice acid in the finish that partially redeems this otherwise single dimensional wine. Suitable as a party wine and, hey, I got it for free, so no complaints.

Good, better next day- could taste peppery notes. Medium body, light in color semi complex taste.

14.5%. Sweet aroma. Light bodied. Flavor is light with somewhat of a lingering bite that doesn't pair too well with the sweetness. However very smooth for the ABV. Not great, but not bad.

Wow, what a surprise. Great fruit and very smooth for a Pinot Noir at this price. Tastes like lots of Sonoma fruit.
