Decent Pinot out of Monterey CA. Easy to drink, opens nicely after some time in glass. Raspberry jam, dark cherry, slight floral undertones (wet rhododendron) translate from nose to palate. Well balanced-a bit tannic.

AMERICAN BEAUTY: Drinkable, enjoyable & great value; black cherry and black pepper on palate - balanced acidity. Perfect for sitting out back with your mother, watching the sunset - on a cloudy day (ha ha) in Hunterdon County, NJ. 2012 vintage - Burgundy vines - Monterey, CA vineyard & winery.

Plummy and dark. Heavier and more tannic than the vine stock it claims to stem from. Ripe, yet full...with a chocolate powder mouth feel.

Darker in color (purple to ruby) / medium plus intensity on the nose- healthy! Mushrooms? / higher acidity than the Joseph Droughin

Not bad. Not really good either. Discounted at Olive garden. Too tanniny for my taste
