Another Pinot Noir from Joe Wagner, a Tri-Appellation with grapes from Sonoma, Monterey and Santa Barbara. Medium Ruby with aromas of red fruit, with some spice. The palate shows rich red fruits of raspberries, cherries and strawberries, with sweet spice. Good balanced, smooth texture, hint of mineral brings this wine to a medium length finish. Nice value Joe.

A nice and fruity Pinot Noir from the house of the Wagner family.

Showing black fruits with chocolate notes, tobacco, light vegetables, earth, vanilla, oak and alcohol.

Medium bodied with medium acidity. Dry on the palate and rich.

Nicely balanced and easy drinking with mild complexity and a nice mouthfeel.

Spicy finish with soft tannins.

A little better than the Meiomi Pinot Noir.

14.9% alcohol by volume. (so watch out 😉)

88 points.

$20.

Great wine from Joseph Wagner- (youngest son of chuck wagner, Caymus winery). Well balanced and smooth with flavors of dark cherry. Tastes more expensive than it is at an affordable $20or so. Found it on sale @Total wine per recommendation of an employee (Bob). Will definitely be enjoying again!

Dark ruby hue with high saturation. Aromas and flavors of blackberry, chalk, cherry, chocolate, minerals, pepper, plum, toffee, and vanilla. Medium-full body; medium tannins; and medium-high acidity. Bold and tasty California-style Pinot Noir: very berry on the nose; but balanced with an acidic, lingering finish. A welcoming wine for any occasion.

Another fantastic Pinot Noir. Seems like it's hard to find a bad one sometimes. Very smooth.
