 Tasted by pkbowen on 4/12/2015 & rated 84 points: No formal notes. Pretty decent rosť, with up-front cherry and strawberry on the nose and palate. Not too much minerality to speak of, and (thankfully) not too much melon on the nose or palate. A little on the flabby side with medium(-) acid. Enjoyable with chicken vegetables. "Good," 84/100.

 Tasted by Cabfrancophile on 9/13/2014 & rated 85 points: Nice QPR on this wine. Smells like a 'pink' wine should: watermelon and strawberry. Lacking a bit of definition on the palate--not as snappy, taut as I'd prefer. But it does deliver nice light, red fruit without any off flavors and has just enough acidity to offset the upfront fruit. (501 views)
 Tasted by ellars on 5/26/2013: A great sunny afternoon wine, light on the lips but with a dry spiciness that holds its own against a variety of food. I'm a big fan of Pinot Noir Rose, so much more interesting than the over-produced "white" Zin. No point in saving this for later, chill it and drink it now! (1325 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.
