Dark and savory aromatically, with spiced red currant, ripe tomato, herbs, and woodsy berries. It’s bright on the palate, though, with sharp red fruits and a foundation note of allspice and cedar. Simpler than the Rubin Green Valley Pinot, but still nice, and food-friendly. 13.7% abv | $25 (sample)

Great stuff. Gentle oak with notes of cherry, currants, and velvety tannin. Very well done.

Clear, bright and light bodied. Big red fruit aromas with hints of dried herbs and baking spices. Ripe Sour Cherry/Cranberry, Forrest Floor and black tea flavors. Rich and smooth. Hint of vanilla on the well balanced finish. Appreciate the magnum, Kase!

Great balance of aromas and flavors. Dark Cherry and plums. Hints of baking spices and cocoa. Lightly Oaked and very soft. Earthy on the elegant finish. Easy drinker. Screw Cap? That being said, extra points for the great QPR. $20 bottle.

I just started drinking wine (literally this is my 3rd bottle but I discovered that I really love wine) and so i can not really say anything worth mentioning other than this wine was very good and it went well with my bbq'ed burger. It wasn't strong like the other Pinot I tried but I believe this one had more of a dry taste and wasnt real fruity. Over all, I give it 4 out 5 Tequila shots (my alcohol of choice was tequila for 25 years) so this is my rating scale until I know better.

However, the only thing is... a screw cap??? What's up with that. Why change something that doesn't need to change, part of the fun is popping the cork.
