 Tasted by sipnwine on 3/24/2015: Not bad, not great, I don't think I'd purchase this again, but did enjoy it as a weekday sipper (132 views)
 Tasted by corka on 1/14/2014 flawed bottle: The cork on this had a distinct odor of vinegar, and while not as pronounced on the wine itself, you could still detect it. (607 views)
 Tasted by RonT on 9/7/2013 & rated 80 points: Light typical Pinot color and body. Very light nose with some fig and earthiness. Very disappointed on tasting. High acidity ruins this. Judging by other notes and ratings maybe a bad bottle?? (746 views)
 Tasted by Grantsky on 8/11/2013 & rated 87 points: Pleasant. Not over powering or stuffed with vanilla oak. Average QPR at best. (776 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.
