Holy cluster! This was done 100% whole cluster and is obvious. Supper spicy and black peppery. It has some greenness to it and I'm disappointed in the color....it looks like it has been oxidized.

Pleasant and easy drinking. Soft tannins with some strawberry jam flavors, not very complex but pretty good nonetheless.

Great balance of juicy red fruit and acidity. Went well with pizza and the woods.

Darker pigmented PN. Aromas of baking spice and dead leaves. Chewy with accompanying black currant and dark fruit followed by some more subtle spice. Finishes with light tobacco. Price = winner, taste = runner-up.

Sour cherries and berry-soft tannins-fruity nose. Straight up stealing from your wine guy for $20 bucks on a Pinot of this caliber. You will not write like Hemingway upon drinking this-but you will drink it like Hemingway.
