A nice medium-bodied pinot with layers of dark fruit, which yield nice depth and an extended, smooth finish. I initially thought I wouldn't like this as the fruit is not as bright as Russian River fruit (my favorite pinot style), but I very much liked this pinot. Great partner for our salmon dinner.
Better than my last bottle. Served at a dinner party was enjoyed by all, but i think this needs a year or two to mellow. Dark pinot fruit that is ripe on the palate. Some nice spice and soft tannin to keep it interesting.
Started with 6 half way through and I am still impressed with this wine. Good deep aromas multiple layers of fruit and spice on the palate, great mouth feel and a very long finish. At $40 this wine is a good value for the high quality of this.
Young, but jam packed with black cherry aromas and flavors, with massively ripe tannins and a long supple finish of black cherry liqueur, spice and creamy vanillins. As delicious as it is now, another year or two will do wonders.
Rich, complex and elegant. Mouth filling flavors and textures of strawberries, ripe cherries, nutmeg, dry earth and cedar. Soft tannins are nicely balanced and lead to a near perfect finish. Interesting after tasting you look at the wine in the glass and expect a dense red color. Instead the wine appears on the lighter bright red side of things. This wine packs a punch. Picked up 2 bottles this afternoon at the Safeway in Truckee for $35. One of the better QPR deals of the year.
Popped and poured we should have decanted and waited a while how ever it is still a great wine. A thick wine with a great color and really long legs. My first impression on the nose was of cola and my first taste were of heat but that left after 15 minutes and on the palate were tastes of cherry, cola, and pepper with a very long finish. A really good wine, great fruit and not a ridiculous price.
Family Winemakers Tasting. lovely nose of dark cherry fruit, better nose than its two peers I tasted, more of the same on the palate, rich, touch of spice, smoke, and game, medium body, and medium/long finish.
