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.

A lot better than I thought. Actually tasted like a good cab with a great balance of sweet to dry. It stayed the same or got better with age after opening. It had a slight sweet front end while the backend enveloped white pepper and the best balance of dry. Want to try again!

Not usually a Mondavi fan. Decent Pinot with a distinct cherry taste, and a dry finish.
