If you like your wine filtered through Kingsford charcoal then this is for you. Really over oaked with pronounced hints of day old ash tray.

For me, aroma was excellent, with dark fruits and soft leather. The fruit forward, however, was too quickly followed by the harshness of pepper, tobacco, and that dang leather.

This is a juicy Pinot noir. It’s great as soon as you open it, but do not try to drink it the next day. My advice is to just finish the bottle when you open it!

Must be in a Pinot noir mood the last two nights. Really enjoyed this one! Has very berry flavors and smooth. Easy drinking palatable wine.

Not a lot of PN experience, this was a nice light red, a bit thin with a nice black/red fruit nose. Was much better on day 2.... a gift from my neighbor for being a "good neighbor". Will be a nice choice during the summer at the Arboretum.
