Needed something “known” to drink and this fit the bill. The light color hides the multi-berries flavors that tend to favor raspberry. Slight flint and chalk are mixed at the mid palate with mild earth tones. Would recommend letting it open up a bit. As always though, this brought a smile to my face.

Drank this right when it was first offered and then held a few bottles on my rack. A couple years appear to have smoothed some of the rough edges and made a more “simple” cuvee into something more elegant. Yes, we get the dark berry combination on the nose and palate but the mid palate to finish feels velvety and screams “Drink More!”

When I know I want a certain taste. . . I just come back to this. Hard to go wrong with RRV Pinot.
