Tastes like cherry/raspberry and smells a little like vanilla. Smooth. Good cheap Pinot noir option.

Too sweet. After a day open it's calmed down a bit but still not to my liking.

This wine was a touch on the acidic side. I would say it is average

Got this for $3.62 at WinCo and it is delicious, especially for the value! I should have grabbed a 2nd bottle to see how it turns out in 5+ years. Definitely needs some mellowing but I got notes of raspberry jam, bing cherry, over-ripe strawberry, cranberry and spice.

👃🏻 fruta roja, chocolate amargo, nota floral con algún defectillo 👄 agradable, ligero y quizás demasiado dulce en el final, un básico disfrutable.

Spicy. Good, but different from an Oregon Pinot, which tends to be juicy/fruity.

Correct, un peu rond à mon goût. Bu dernier soir avec chambre de rêve sur bord de mer à Pompano.

Fruity smell and taste, cherries/strawberries/raspberries, light vanilla notes that softened the acidity, needed a breather when first opened but mellowed after I sloshed it around a bit, moderately dry, served it half chilled. Drank it with Hannah while we watched a Very Duggar Wedding and talked bout her date with Ryan. Really good for an $8 walmart bottle. It was also a beautiful bright berry color! (13.5%)
