    February 20, 2019 - Big Top Closeout Deal Wines; 11/22/2018-2/24/2019 (Minneapolis/ St. Paul MN): Day 3 Review: Decant Pinot with spice, scorched earth, floral and ripe strawberries. Does have some Pinot Noir character and is not the sweet stuff produced by Meiomi. Based on my rating system it is a decant QPR wine.
    Recommendation: Drink now. $6.99 on closeout.

    April 15, 2017 - Dark cherry, cranberry, mushroom, forest floor. Not sure what the others have been drinking. This is a decent moderately priced pinot.

    January 22, 2017 - Aroma of Bright red fruits, with a hint of flower pedals. Tastes tart with a hint of cranberry.

    June 15, 2016 - Dark red with an inviting nose of black cherry and pomegranate. The sip starts well with a smooth texture, bright acidity, and decent concentration, but then skids into a disagreeable and astringent cherry pit bitterness around the swallow, which a juicy saliva very slowly dissolves, tapering off into a thin and fruitless finish.

    January 31, 2016 - A little heavy for a Pinot noir but definitely a solid daily drinker. Comes with a screw top though which is a little lame

    November 15, 2014 - Giant Wine Sale & Tasting 11/15/2014 Cellar in Greene, Columbia, SC (Cellar on Greene, Columbia, SC): This Pinot is made in a balanced, sweet, leesy style. They combined grapes from 3 divergent areas renowned for growing good Pinot. It is soft and approachable with plum, cherry and raspberry. It comes across as sweet, though it is probably totally dry because of good balance. Refined little tannins. Some secondary, spicy, herbal flavors. The finish has some mocha with the dark fruit.

    July 13, 2014 - Again, not quite sure about the appellation as it's listed on the bottle, but again, 40% Monterey, 30% Sonoma, 30% Mendocino.
    Cherry fruit aromas with a very suave palate.
