Very light bodied; rich cherry juice; low tannins; pretty simple

A better, lightly fruited effort than the Willamette.

A bit on the bigger side for a pinot--for food pairing perhaps. Needs more complexity.

Wonderful! Very smooth! Cherries and a slight oak and vanilla finish.

Drinks like an expensive bottle but is only $16 at HEB. Not too light. Not sweet.

4,5 years ago, Mark West was one of my favorites. Not the case anymore. Is it my palate or their quality? Cherry, vanilla and spice a little darker than most Pinots. Screams of Mediocrity. Plenty of better options out there.
