Man, this is a great wine for the money. With or without a meal, it is smooth and tasty. The initial bouquet is just as good as the finish. We love this wine all the time. So smooth and savory.

13.5% abv. Picked this up at the local grocer. Very fragrant on the sniff test, taste of cherry and light oak, with a smooth finish. The best part is it was on sale for $6.99. You can't beat that with a stick. Enjoyable value wine.

Not my favorite pinot at this price point, but it's certainly not something I regret purchasing. I thoroughly enjoy the balance of oak and fruit that are fairly standard in California Burgundy blends

While I found the name slightly offensive the wine drinks real good.

Wine tastes flat. No real flavor to it. $7.99 @ HyVee
