Looks like a Pinot noir, this one is quite dark but thinly so. It has a beautiful bouquet, and a distinctly PN nose, hard to identify but I smell cherry plummy fruit and forest on a misty day. Now for the taste...dark fruit, medium acidity and medium tannins. Medium finish. Mostly a pleasant wine. Not great, but not bad either.

Very dry on first impression, great aroma of berries on nose. Light in after taste, couldn’t feel any depth or complexity, but in overall good wine with seafoods as I’ve felt.

E’ molto stabile in qualita. Sarebbe il piu pinot noir sotto venti dollari nel mondo (Cinquedieci dollari a best buy liquer). Abbiamo bisogno di tenere a casa un paio di botteglie.

Smelled great but was unbalanced on palate with spurts of jolting acidity and Alcohol hot spots - add to that a dry finish. Really odd - thinking this bottle was off

Honestly not my fave pinot ever - the tannins/dryness overpower some of the otherwise nice jammy, oaky components. Curious to see what a day of breathing will do for it, though.
