I’m a sucker for the mineral, savory, lighter tannin Pinots. Iron on the nose. Savory brandied cherries, pomegranate. Higher alc.

Layers of ripe red and black cherry, red plum with a hint of sweetened but still tart cranberry sauce. Not particularly complex, but a nice enjoyable wine.

Spicy red fruit and black fruits. Hints of old world but not too much. #pinotnoir

Would you believe? Acid, hoisin sauce and hints of cherry peeking through.
