    June 13, 2014 - Pinot noir typé Nouveau monde avec une robe assez dense pour un pinot, une nez charmeur sur les épices et une bouche ample et légèrement sucré mais sans aucune complexité. finale courte.

    April 4, 2014 - Thin, fruit driven New World Pinot Noir. Nil secondary characteristics. I do not think it has the elements to improve with time.

  • StefanAkiko Does not like this wine: (76 points)

    November 7, 2013 - Thin, short, watery useless wine.
    Light red.
    Nose says: "small New World PN".
    Palate says: pointy/spiky acids, shoooort, watery, poor wine. Got better after 2 hrs of air. Was slam-dunk-killed by a creamy Brie...
    Score reflects the most generous score I can possibly award this wine.
    With TS, some crackers, cheese and then grappa (Stlm, Sweden)
