 Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 5/12/2014: She told me it was on the "femine side" of Pinot Noir and sure, I an believe that. But moreso, here is a gorgeous drinking wine that is both soft and sharply articulated, never boring, precise and also hedonistic. A find. (385 views)
 Tasted by oropeza on 8/17/2013 & rated 88 points: Division Wine Collective Tasting (Division Wine Collective): cherry, licorice, nice mouth feel, lots of acidity, nice & good value (545 views)
 Tasted by Chrisinroch on 6/4/2013: Light bodied, elegant wine. Needed time and air to open up and become more interesting. Nose of rose petals, tea, slight alcohol. Tart, bright red fruit. (531 views)
 Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 5/29/2013: A bit tart and mineral, wonder what the price is. Maybe a touch over at $26. (559 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.
