Ultimate Beverage Challenge 85 points - An everyday Pinot Noir to wash down pizzas and burgers. Smells like dust, earth and pencil lead, encased in lush, sweet berries - all following through on the palate. Juicy, lush and thirst-quenching! (May 2012)
Red berry perfume with a touch of cinnamon spice, wrapped in a blanket of subtle French oak. Breathe it in. This is one of Pinot Noir's great pleasures. The taste is pure Pinot, too. Mouth-filling overripe raspberry and cherry flavors. Soft and supple. The wine exhibits a velvet finish due to the soft tannins and understated acidity.
