I like it... I like it a lot! Nose is cherry and spice. A halo of white around a pool of semi transparent red/purple/ gold, yes gold liquid is what you see in the glass. Now, let’s analyze the taste....warm, not too much acid, medium body, noticeable but friendly tannins... very food friendly! So yummy with pork tenderloin, so yummy with buttered cauliflower dusted with nutmeg , so yummy with dark chocolate covered coconut. Yeah, baby, pour me some more!

Very good well balance sipping red wine. Great with cheese, shrimp cocktail, etc. A bit light but surprisingly good with ribs.

Glassy, true red in color. Oak and undeveloped fruit aroma. A little raspberry, strawberry, and oak. Overall bright and acidic. Ok.

Delicate. Cherry, spice and earth. Chalky tannins with good length. Not bad but not worth the price. $43. 2013

Good, everyday Pinot. Very floral with hints of strawberry and rose petal but also toasted marshmallow.
