I remember drinking this wine a few years ago and when thinking back, it feels like the newer vintages have upped their ripeness and extraction. This was quite dense with rich fruit and spice...crunchy cranberry, pomegranate, and black peppercorn aromatics. The front palate is loaded but fades a touch to where the finish is a bit thin. On the palate there is a lot of potpourri and spicy rhubarb pie wrapped in black cherries. Not much acidity. I’d drink these fairly early.

This is 3rd time in a month that we experienced EnRoute. Nice consistent offering. Standard Pinot flavors with some butterscotch added on the finish. Love that kind of finish.

A medium ruby. Strawberry nose. Slight perfume. Red licorice, plum, cranberry, with a nice balanced approach. Mid-palette finish.

Cherry and cranberry on the nose. Big ripe cherry, cedar, vanilla, nice acidity, soft tannins. Nice finish. Seems fruit is a bit more ripe than previous vintages.

Fairly ripe and extracted vision of RRV PN. Fruit fwd but not overblown in the least. Made well but not really my jam at 14.5%. A lot of people like this style tho. Red fruits and root beer. Decant, smoke a big doob, and pair with a big ass pot roast and some taters for a good time

Just ok lacks character and a sense of place. Perhaps raspberry and some dark berries a little cooked. Spicy.
