Tasted thin when first opened, but it improved with some air. Color is lighter than most pinots. Strawberry, cotton candy, maraschino cherry on the nose. Tart cherry flavor. Acidity is a bit on the heavy side, but I like it. Finish is fairly short. Good QPR.
color 3/5 nose 7/10 taste 13/20 balance 7/10 finish 3/5
Decanted for 1 hr: Garnet color - definitely darker than other pinots I've seen. Fresh aromas of dark cherry, strawberry and grape jelly. Smooth tastes of tart raspberry, cherry and asparagus. A bit of smoke, tannins and spice on the finish, which is moderate in length. Paired well with honey baked ham, stuffing, yams and green beans. Very good value at $10.
