Clear ruby in color; closed muted nose of must, cherry, a bit of cedar; still some decent fruit, cherry and raisin, on the palate; lightly structured and somewhat weak body; minimal finish. Pleasant but not pleasing, if that makes sense. I would serve this at a picnic, but not at a sit-down meal with discerning oenophiles. I don't dislike this wine, but I don't like it enough to buy again.
Was initially promising when I first tried it two years ago so I bought a case. Unfortunately, it just keeps getting worse each time I try it. Fruit faded fast and now it is developing a bitter finish.
Discovering Wine: Light bodied with a transparent ruby hue, the King Estate Acrobat Pinot Noir has a nose of bing cherry and a slight earthiness. The wine is very lightly structured, very fruity with tart cherries. The short finish features more cherry. This seems too pedestrian, nothing to grab your attention.
Beautiful floral and spice notes for this OR Pinot. Enjoyed at a local restaurant which happily serves reds at cellar temp rather than room temp. High marks for the wine program at Firebird's Wood Fired Grill.
Colour: ruby, pale, clear Aromas: damp, fresh minerals and a bit of cedar. low. Tannins: medium, soft Flavours: cherry, raisin. Extremely light pinot. Preferred it chilled a bit and served like a Beaujolais Nouveau. Not a lot of flavour, but fine with food. If looking for a light red, I would skip this and choose a gamay instead.
