This is a very approacable, fruit forward Pinot, with light aromas of raspberry and strawberry. The light bodied pallate is much of the same with a hint of sweetness and vanilla. However, the aromas and taste seemed to fade quickly after a few minutes in the glass. Not memorable but certainly enjoyable and quaffable, not to mention a good value as well. This week's wine pairing with Game of Thrones! ($7)

So smooth and fruity. a little dry, but light side of it. 100% recommend to early wine drinkers.

Smooth, easy drinking. Lite tannins. Great with a hot bath

Light ruby in color with a light red rim.

Fruity nose of plums, cherries, blueberries, light oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, metals, barnyard, earth and black pepper.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and some light legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, cloves, earth, leather, green pepper, chocolates, smoke, herbs and peppercorn.

Medium finish with soft tannins and bitter almonds.

Drinkable, simple and not fully balanced. Can be good for a house wine, or every day food wine, but too bitter for my taste.
Had other vintages before, and this vintage is better, as it's not too watery. I paired it with grilled chicken.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

Light, slightly harsh, not very consistent. Not too terrible for its price, but for a wine it's just alright.

Sour cherry and vanilla and a bit too sweet. Previous vintages of this wine I have thoroughly enjoyed but this was disappointing. $12.
