A tad sweet, but lovely buttery banana cream in this smooth chard.

A wine that could make me want to drink more Pinot Noir (usually a cab or Spanish person). Very enjoyable.

A little bit too sweet, but otherwise good. Similarly, no complexity very, very simple. I want to say I don't like it, but I can't. It's just a good, easy-drinking red. Good with tacos.

Heavy cherry, Pinot noir, tannins wrap it together. Lighter than other Pinot noir from California.
