The best sextant vintage of Pinot yet! Vibrant bright cherry, lively wine that evolves in the glass. Perfect thanksgiving wine, which is why I paired it with the delicate pork tenderloin tonight. Has enough racy acid to challenge the vinaigrette accompanying the couscous salad. Lovely! ‘Tis the season! www.freerunjuicewine.com — comment and tag me if you would like a discount code! Cheers friends!

The bouquet is average but there's a complexity to the hit on the palette. Drinking a lot of Pinot lately and this is def a top notch one. If you catch it below $20 like I did you're getting a whole lot of special favors with the plums and the cherries. Special!
