Big fruit. Quite concentrated and lots of alcohol but without the burn. This is a big boy!

Needs air! No nose until an hour or more breathing. Flavors improve too. Mouthfeel medium to light. Great fruit, but not complex.

Tight nose. Mature fruit. Lengthy finish, but a bit hot.

Sorry, the frizzante doesn't work for me. Mouthfeel is wrong. Flavors are ok, but a big disappointment overall.

A lot of oak on the nose with some spiciness and cherry. Really smooth mouthfeel and a medium finish. A bit of acid up front followed by the cherries and then some oak. Not bad at all at this price.

Cork soaked through from shipping. Drinkable, but probably not representative. I have a few more so I'll hold judgement for a better bottle.

Total disappointment for the price. Classic Pinot nose and color. Flavors are thin at best and the finish is nearly non-existent. If I'd had this blind, I would have guessed it was a $10 Pinot. Too bad.
