Their Pinotauge rocks... This left me uninspired... OK for an everyday glass, but I don't think you would go out of your way to buy it again...

Decent wine but almost tasted sour? Like the winery but maybe wouldn't get this again.

Well made could complete with a Napa cab at twice the price.

I'm a little surprised by this wine. Hopping it's not that my palate was shot.

Lots of tannins in this wine. Tastes of cherries and nutmeg. Very smokey and oak notes. Needs time to breathe to open the flavours.

Takes a bit to open up. Once it does, you will get a bit of spice, tobacco and cherry. Pair it with rich meat dishes.

Silky on the palate but dry enough to counter the berries. Different flavor, but nice. We had it at 1200°

Strawberry notes on the nose. Distinctly tart, but fruity, taste with a citrus finish (like grapefruit). Mild acidity. Long finish.
