For a #10 wine spectator wine it should be better but I am not the Pinot noir fan usually

Bouquet of raspberries and floralness. Tastes of red raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry, almost a compote. Then some sour cherry and maybe a berry jolly rancher? Then maybe some woodiness. Ends w a touch of white pepper. Delicious. Nowhere near the single vineyard stuff from Hartford but for the price this is some great stuff!

It not my cup of tea. Too much concentrated dried berry - seems pretty well structured and has some zing but I don’t like all that sweetness. It’s why I hate raisins.
