Pretty nice wine. Elegant, a bit of spice and toasty qualities. Not a knockout pinot but good for its price range.

Founded in 1973 in the Sonoma Valley, CSJ produces a portfolio of wines as well as vineyard designated wines, and the flagship Cinq Cépages Cabernet Sauvignon. 100% Pinot Noir with red berry aromas and notes of black tea. On the palate cherry and strawberry flavors with cacao and leather spice. Lively acidity, well balanced on lingering finish ending with a touch of mineral tones.

Rich pinot noir, some nice notes of plum and tobacco. Definitely far from the driest pinot

Quick finish. Cherries, vanilla, and earthy spiciness. Got it on sale for $12. Good score.

Cherry, tobacco, leather and vanilla on nose. Light bodied, oaky, indistinct spiciness, some jam on palate. Good value for Pinot Noir.
