 Tasted by Anonymous on 4/24/2015 & rated 88 points: Quite enjoyable still. Leather and some fruity aromas. Definite strawberry flavours. Medium short finish. Just a nice light, fruity wine. (1312 views)
 Tasted by theoves on 11/16/2013 & rated 88 points: Nice, light, easy drinking pinot. Great for dishes that are light but call for a little more than a white wine. Pleasant and good value. (2493 views)
 Tasted by RandomCoil on 8/15/2013 & rated 89 points: Very nice for the price. Not particularly smoky or fruity, but a nice earthy balance. (2860 views)
 Tasted by ey1294 on 3/15/2013 & rated 85 points: - Crimsom color with fast forming legs and aromas of cherry, black pepper and rose. It's balanced and has flavours of strawberry and cherry with a medium body. Smooth texture with a short finish. (2231 views)
 Tasted by David Bohnsack on 3/12/2013 & rated 86 points: Reminded us of an Italian table red. Good value. (3452 views)
 Tasted by remaxkay on 1/21/2013 & rated 86 points: Simple, pleasant, easy to drink. Would great for parties. (985 views)
 Tasted by Billigan on 8/9/2012 & rated 86 points: I think the comparison to a good village Beaujolais is apt in terms of the ability to be a light, food friendly wine that nonetheless packs sufficient earthiness, smokiness, and juicy-fruited flavor to be compelling. (5105 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 6/30/2012 & rated 88 points: Great, light and refreshing Oregon Pinot. Nice value for the price. (1479 views)
 Tasted by Tuppertn on 6/22/2012 & rated 84 points: Light-garnet in color, nose of berries and green pepper with a hint of smoke. Medium/light bodied, straightforward and simple on the palate with very light tannin. Reminiscent of a Brouilly or Beaujolais Villages. Drink now. (5098 views)
 Tasted by sipnwine on 5/27/2012 & rated 88 points: So far I haven't found many Pinot Noirs I enjoy, but the wife and I did like this one. Very drinkable. It's not overly complex or deep, but it was a nice enjoyable bottle.
Entered the above before finishing the bottle, by the end both my wife and I agreed we wouldn't purchase this again. It's drinkable, but not worth it (4010 views)
 Tasted by Nanums on 5/27/2012 & rated 80 points: The label describes this wine appropriately saying it is an introductory Pinot noir. Price and Taste reflect that. Very simple taste. Not much finish. Very basic. (839 views)
 Tasted by Mig22 on 2/28/2012 & rated 90 points: Beautiful light aromas of strawberry ,a bit of vine, and smoke. Palate is delicate strawberry, a little greenness, and that hint smoke and earth, just a little, that give it some depth. Very well made and was flawless with simple dry rub pork chops. (4000 views)
 Tasted by friezu on 10/17/2011 & rated 88 points: This is an example of the lighter side of what Oregon has to offer. Don't choose this wine if you are in the mood for a heavier, more syrah-like Oregon wine. Cigarette smoke on the nose with plenty of raspberry and strawberry to back it up. Perfectly in balance (in my opinion), but lacks the depth of flavor to make it an outstanding wine; however, I was expecting much less. Drink soon. (3832 views)

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.
