From vineyards located in Sonoma, Mendocino, and Santa Barbara counties, this garnet hued wine has a nose of sweet, ripe berries with a touch of earth and smoky herbs. The palate is rich, thick, and creamy for a Pinot Noir. Flavors of red cherries, cola, red candy licorice, and chocolate truffle form the core. Finishes long, with hints of cola and minerals. Utterly enjoyable and sumptuously easy to drink, yet multi-dimensional and complex. This is my kind of Pinot Noir. Drink from 2011 to 2019.
Popped and poured. Nose of raspberry and plum, same fruits subtly on the palate. Nice balance at this price point ( I think we paid $15 from a store that , lamentably, has closed). As others have noted, great QPR.
