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

Ruby with berry fruit and spice notes. On the palate strawberry and cherry flavors with some cacao, sweet spice and tobacco nuances. Firm tannins, good length on finish ending a bit tangy. Just Ok.

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.

Prisvärd! Clean, strong, ok balance; but lacks refinement.
