2nd go round on this guy. A light garnet in color. Very subtle nose. A lighter style Pinot that was very complimentary to our salmon. More of a delightful experience the second time around.

Bought out of curiosity. Up and coming Pinot terroir. Very light. Funky nose. Wine paid off better than nose. Strawberry and faint notes of raspberry. Short finish.

Mad legit, gorgeous nose, pure, nuanced spine with plenty of juice and downright pinot yumminess. Crisp morello cherry, pomegranate, cranberries, blood orange, ferns, earth, Ceylon cinnamon, sandalwood, raspberry leaf, sweet herbs, ground volcanic rocks. Gorgeous floral backdrop to the wine. Structurally its nuanced, plenty of definition and focus with this juicy mid-palate, nice length and silky tannins, bright acid drives the wine. Stoked on this 🔥

I have these Mac Forbes Pinots in my cellar but have never tried one. This glass was quite pale but had good intensity- showing stems influence. A good Pinot showing acceptable concentration for its Price Point.

Smooth and seductive. Fruit is
Beautiful. Would love to see it in a few years to see if it develops a few edges. Hard to resist now though
