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

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

Very red-fruit forward, with vanilla and slight oak tones. Just on that juicy/over-sweet borderline. Think it would be a mixed-crowd pleaser tho. $20. Cm liked

Worst pinot noir i ever tasted. Way too much oak, way to aggressive. Tasted more like a cheap zinfandel than a pinot noir. Pinot noir are supposed to be subtle and elegeant, this one was loud and vulgar.
