July 19, 2014 - Pop and pour and tasted with food at the end of a dinner. (Spaghetti with a tomato-basil sauce, and grilled chicken, in case you were wondering.)
Good nose of spice and candied fruit. A bit sweet but the earthy element along with a core of acidity keeps the ripe fruit in check. Enjoyable.

May 20, 2014 - Another great value Pinot from Sandler. Somewhat on the bigger side, with lots of bright red fruit and some earth. Good acidity, so it should age.2 people found this helpful Comment

May 6, 2014 - A darker, heavier pinot. Reminds me of Meiomi but better. Cedar box and strawberry rhubarb pie. Was still good 5 nights later. Nice QPR!
