A bit tart for my taste. Oak & tobacco notes. I prefer more complex wines.

Unremarkable, but not bad; almost no notable flavors or aromas, but no offensive elements

This PN has medium acidity and tart raspberry plum flavors, accompanied by a bit of oaky smoke. Not bad as a food wine - suggest Chinese cuisine- but not a cocktail wine by any stretch of the imagination.

Darker rim than most Pinots I have. Not very fruity forward, more spice with a little tart cherry. Godd, not great.
