Easy to drink but not much character. A little thin infact my wiife said it seemed watered-down. I didn't get any sense of over alc. at all This was well balanced. Maybe I opened this too early, I just saw the drinking window.
Reticent, offering red raspberry, red cherry, and underbrush flavors that are simplistic and monolithic. Light bodied, but still mangaging to show a lot of alcohol on the palate, with red fruit and savory overtones.
Drank over 2 evenings. Decanted half on the 1st evening for 1 hour before trying it. Overall, pleasant and unoffensive but ordinary. Not much happening here. It did soften and showed a slight bit more complexity on the 2nd evening.
I keep trying these entry level Oregon Pinot Noirs but I have not found a real nice one yet. Seems like the wines start getting interesting at around $16. Oh well...
