A nice Pinot. Not remarkable, but good. Tastes more like a cab blend.

A pinot that thinks it's a syrah. Big and lush, nicely balanced, but grab this when you want a syrah or zin, not a French pinot.

From the Belle Glos winemakers. Ruby with aromas of red fruit and spice. The palate shows red fruit, raspberry and strawberry with pepper spice. The wine was medium body and finishes with toasty oak notes, about medium in length. Not as good as 2013, but still ok. Tasting Sample.

Jan 2017. Had two bottles of this. First one had detergent on nose. Not from glasses as detergent never used in them. No detergent taste. Detergent aroma dissipated with decanting but never completely. Second bottle NO detergent aroma. Hmmmm. But agree with other reviewers that this is not purely Pinot noir. Or maybe that is the only grape, but certainly seems something else added. Will not get again.

For the price @$15 this is very nice. Smooth finish with strong fruit. Was told they make it exclusively for Total Wine & More. Not sure about that but you can't go wrong with this one.

I really enjoyed this, perfect intro to Fall... I agree with other posts, it feels more like a red blend than a Pinot noir, but it's still delicious.
