Smells like a more expensive pinot with really classic sour cherry coming through. The palate has loads of vanilla and and the fruit moves from sour to a more sweet strawberry flavor. This is a very quaffable wine for the price but don't expect anything you haven't seen before.

Solid, simple Pinot Noir, but outperforms its rice point considerably.

Lots of dark fruit and cherry. Needed to open up a bit, but once it did, really a great Pinot at the price point!

Is this fruit juice I'm drinking? Stupidly easy to drink. Low tannin. One element strongly reminds me of tempranillos, but I really can't identify what it is exactly (never was able to). Perhaps my new everyday wine.

Too jammy pinot. Black berry jam on the nose. Fruity and low in acidity. Not for me. A little more body and more bold than usual.
