Community Tasting Notes (average 3 notes) - and median of 91 pts. in hiding notes with no text
| ||Tasted by easttide on 12/26/2014 flawed bottle: Past it's prime. Down the drain. (133 views)|
| ||Tasted by ancientvines on 11/30/2004: Very Smooth, good fruit for a Pinot Noir. The problem is it is a Pinot Noir, and an expensive one at that. But all in all a very drinkable wine. Strongly recommended if in the mood for a Pinot and price is not an obstacle. (1218 views)|
| ||Tasted by Vino Me on 5/12/2003 & rated 91 points: Tasted at the WS Grang Tour. Rather firm tannins for a Pinot Noir. The wine had rich red fruit notes predominantly centered on black cherry. Some slight nuttiness. Medium bodied. 91+. (1009 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.
