Warming with a peppery finish, not to heavy, and an organic scent. My girlfriend kinda hated this one @Thomas Bauer

Earthy and restrained cherry, orange peel and baking spice. In the mouth it has lovely balance and restraint. Light on its feet with terrific youthful verve. A wine that will love and respect almost any food at table and even the morning after. A wine for my Food and Wine Pairing Class.

Drinkable but lacks character, I get a little leather on the finish, not a lot of fruit light in tannins like you would expect, decent but nothing impressive

Bright cherries, tart to start. Spice carries it through well. Woody finish.

Cherry (bing) and spice. Slightly candy. Not great for a Pinot. $12.99-$24.99

Slightly sour and fruity with a touch of oak. Not too tannic. Good with chili ;-P

While sampling (my thoughts): "Am I drinking a Cab....?" "This smells like it's turning...but what is that smell" After "letting it breathe"...."this tastes welcoming and less like vinegar..." Over all thoughts: mixed sensations
