For a sub $20 Pinot this is a must try! WS rating 92. Luscious Bing Cerry, dark berries, spice, tea leaves and lavender. Rated previously. Per my location and availability of wine....very grateful for Wine.com and their Stewardship membership!

I recently conducted an experiment...Wine.com 10% off of $99, an offering that does not present very often.

All wines needed to score 90 or above by Wine Spectator..except for the Burn Cottage PN all bottles were less than $20. My purchase... five bottles in total.

1). Burn Cottage Moonlight Race 2015. WS 91..
Most expensive $42.
2). Novellum Chardonnay 92 by JD..this was
Included to make the $99.
3). Innocent Bystander PN 2017. 92 by WS.
...will keep you posted on other two.

This wine is great for sub $20...blueberry...cherry..tea leaves.a soft herbal component and dried flowers or sage. This definitely beat the Burn Cottage in terms of complexity!

Record temperature set in Iowa today! 1° early am! WHAT!⛄🌨
