Let this breathe for an hour or so and you will be pleasantly surprised. Even though a little short on the length it is surprisingly balanced with some great flavors.

For the price, not bad but overall "meh". Candied red fruit on nose and palate. Finish is a bit off.

My wife picked this up at Sams Club, (where everything is 50% off before they close the Milwaukee stores.) The label says, "Located on Monterey's pacific coast where the cool fog sweeps in each evening". As a soldier once stationed at Fort Ord, I can attest to the coastal fog part. This wine has great berry flavors, mild acidity, and a semi dry finish. A very enjoyable taste at a bargain price. Pairs well with beef tenderloin.

Cherries and plums. Little thin. Probably nice with a tomato sauce or sausage.

An ok Pinot. I'm sure it would have paired lovely with red meat or something with some spice, but I could have made a better choice with my tilapia and broccoli rabe.
