Fuller-bodied with ripe cherry, plum and mocha flavors. Straight-forward, but has a 10-sec finish. It's hard to find decent value Pinots and while they don't compare with the big guys, they are out there. There is good bang for the buck here.

Very drinkable with a smooth finish. Don't let the screw-top scare you off...give it a try!

Respectable, but not sensational. No 'Wow' moments...just a pleasant feel on the tongue and a nice Malbec strength. A bit of fruit (I don't have the palate to describe it properly), but unlike some other reds, did not increase in complexity with food.

Quite a lovely Pinot. Hints of spice and berry on the nose. Chocolate and mocha richness with decent tannins in the mouth.
