Subtle spice and herbs on the nose. Raspberry and other red fruits mingle on the palate. Great acid. I recommend decanting as it gained complexity with air.

Very good, even better after breathing a bit.

It's not the dirty, filthy, stinky type of Pinot that I typically for, but this one was great. Highly concentrated flavors of blackberry, cherry, lavender, soil, and tobacco conclude with a smooth, silky, lingering finish with well integrated tannins. It's a bit hot and will age a few years. Loved it!

A very decent, well-priced Pinot that's easy to drink but also does not break the bank. Smooth, well-integrated tannins and subtle berry fruit.

Solid low price wine. Deep red color and somewhat thin. Doesn't have the string finish if a top shelf wine.
