Dominated by cranberry, mostly fruit without much in the way of herbal complexity, but very clean and enjoyable.

A gift. Tart with medium acid and bright tannins. If it weren't for the bright fruit on the nose I would have almost called this an Oregon Pinot.

Not complex but deep beautiful new world flavors. Good acidity and excellent on the palate. Fruit forward but well taken care of.

I was a little scared by the screw top, but this is an excellent, delicate Pinot.

Fruit to start; no long finish; very little mid palate.
