Whoa. I didn't expect this from a Pinot. Almost Zin-like in its kick-you-in-the-mouth fruitiness. Turns out I love that.

Extremely fruity aromas, full-bodied, intense ripe fruit aromas. Interesting, yet still Burgundy tops any pinot I've tried.

Nice Pinot with good taste. I did not expect this as I enjoy their Cabernet immensely.

Never have I ever tasted a Pinot that tastes this much like a roasted marshmallow. Seriously...it's wild. Would love to see it with a more toned down barrel.

Expressive bright red raz-cherry nose. Dry and moderately fruity palate.

Earth, red fruit, rose petals, earth, tobacco, forest floor. Needs the right food. Bitter on the palate.

Nice balance of raspberries and earth. Plus, it makes my hand look HUGE. #pinot
