For a $10 Pinot, this is hard to compete with. Light and clear as it sits in the glass. The nose is a little muted at first but once it was open I can get some floral notes, hints of strawberry and red fruits. Very easy to drink, seems pretty balanced for such a basic wine. Nice summer red.
Tasted at Brix wine bar. Nose: Medium expressiveness, cherry fruit with floral scents - rose. Palate: Medium bodied, nice balance, light red fruit - cherry and strawberry. with a nice creamy texture which dominates a medium length finish.
Pop and pour through Nuance Wine Finer. Red color, with strawberry, cherry and floral scents on the nose. Light mouthfeel, with strawberry, a little pepper and spice, and some tartness on the back end. Nothing terribly wrong with this wine -- just a bit one dimensional and it just felt very thin. 85-86pts. Aloha!
6/11/10: Well, our supplier sent some of this two us at half price by mistake, and I'll tell you what, it's still an 86-87 point wine, but for $10, I like it a lot more. Has an annoying vanilla thing on the back end that does go away with a little air. Pretty standard PN.
1/22/10: Didn't like this as much as the PG. Meidum bodied. Rather boring. 86
Fantastic light bodied Pinot, just how Pinot Noir should be!! Light translucent color, all around very well balanced wine,enjoyed by all at the dinner party, thinking this will go very well with Turkey day after tomorrow...
