Soft, fruit forward, and elegant medium tannins. Rustic style wine with flavors of red berries, fresh herb, and underbrush. Really enjoyed this, plus it's a massive value buy at around $11-12 a bottle. #qprfordays

2012, smooth velvety tannins and spice is nice. Paired with lamb and sweet potato stew with raisins and garbanzo beans.

Aroma of spice up front. A tart cranberries a few seconds on the tongue followed by a dryness and burst of dark fruit.

Pleasant; very light bodied; mineral on the nose; somewhat watery flavor; red fruits, light tannins, subtle oak; still a style I enjoy

An extremely friendly Pinot Noir. The nose is constructed of spices, violets, and cranberries. On the palate, everything is kept in check, but in a way that leaves you wanting. The tannins do dry out your palate a touch, and sadly... the finish drops off almost completely. If only you could copy and paste the nose onto the finish.
