Good for the price. Warmer climate fruit and not terribly varietally correct, but tasty. Considering it is PN, very tasty.

A gift I opened to tide me through watching the Oscars. Green leaf and briar notes in nose, with an undercurrent of raspberry and blackberry. Slightly peppery and tart initially, light tannins with decent berry (black, blue) and slight cherry and cranberry character. Spice flavor emerges later. Highly drinkable if not 100% on point varietally; then again, I drink mostly Oregon pinots these days, so what do I know about the range of Pinot styles from California today?

A perfect light red wine for a warm summer day or evening. Good value!

The right kind of spicy and elegant I needed. Opened up nicely, long finish. #PinotNoir #DeLoach

One of the best $10 #pinotnoir I have had. Hint if spice with cherries and strawberry. Good #qpr
