The acid balance was way off on this wine -- would almost be better chilled and drank like a rosé. Hibiscus and red tea with cooked grapefruit-like astringency.

Acidity is on the crazy side...but at $9 at my local wine shop...I'll take it!

Acidity high. The burn feeling likely to cause heartburn

Pretty good. A bit on the tart side; full bodied.

A little out of balance. Not the greatest Pinot. But still enjoyable.

Red ruby in color.

Heavy American oak on the nose, burring the fruits, with vanilla, blackberries, cherries, cloves and black pepper.

Medium + in body with medium + acidity and no legs.

Extremely fruity on the palate with oak, vanilla, cloves and blackberries.

Short finish with no tannins whatsoever.

There's Nothing left on this Pinot (with some Sangiovese) Probably on its last leg. Still fruity, but nothing else left in it. Had it at a party, they all finidhed the bottle, though...
I say , not drinkable.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

Starts off a bit acidic but by the time you've had 3/4 of the bottle it's super smooth and fruity. Lots of strawberry. I like it.
