I thought this was a bit hot (14.8% ABV), but Mrs S liked it a lot.

Solid value Pinot. Good cherry and dried berry flavors. Had for 4 straight nights at dinner.

Medium garnet red. Interesting nose with some burnt characteristics, a little smokey, rhubarb, and even a touch sweet. Balanced acidity and tannins (5.5/10). Light plus bodied. Similar on the palate but thinner. Medium bodied. Drink till 2019.

One of the worst Pinots I have ever had, which is crazy because I loved their Russian River Valley Pinot. Wondering if something happened to the bottle. It tasted over-the-top sanguine.

It was cheap so I didn't have high hopes. Pleasantly surprised by the dusty rose aromas, flavors of smoky, resinous pomegranate, edgy acidity and angular tannins that hit a certain spot on my tongue. Age has helped, but could do only so much.
