Nothing about this wine pointed to a Pinot. It had a blackish color and was smoky as all hell.

Concentrated & complex. Great fruit & terroir expressions. Only 300 cases produced!

Slightly jammy smokey aroma. Not as jammy as most Pinot noirs but still decent. Smokey and spicy notes not usually seen in most Pinot noirs. Wish it had more body. Good but not great.

Smoke for days. Definitely a change of pace. Very interesting.

Tastes like liquid smoke. Borderline drinkable.

Lots of layers. Smokey and rich, but some bright red juice to remind you it's a Pinot.
