Tried this again, red fruit aromas with slight spice. The palate shows cherries and plums fruit with a good dose of oak and out of balance acidity. Some earthiness brings this wine to a medium finish. Not overly complex and out of balance. I would grab other Pinots at similar price points. Tasting Sample.

Definite barrel tones on the nose, spice, lacquer, and mushroom. The palate has some dark cherry, strawberry, licorice, and a very mellow mouthfeel.. Touch of acid, smooth going down. Great food wine.

Nice dark ruby color. Nose has some dark raspberry, slight oak. Nice cherry..the pallet is nice and velvety of dark red fruit, wood, and nice ripe tannins of dried raspberry.

Good when paring with food, but when drink alone, it lost some attractions.
