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.

Can taste the vanilla and sense raspberry. Not terribly impressed because I felt the price was higher than it should have been.

Pale complexion. Bright floral nose set the stage for a palate that just does not follow through. All the delicious red fruit on the nose is just not present at all on the palate. Tannins are at least in balance and very soft, building in late. Short but pleasant finish. Leaves a lot to be desired. (Edited) much more drinkable close to room temp - 70* or so. Opens up the palate. Huge difference. Drink it warm!
