Garnet in color with a nice varietal nose of soft red berries. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice soft red berries to match the nose, think raspberries and the like, along with some nice rustic notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some soft tannins and acidity. This is a milder, food friendly, varietal pinot noir. For the price it’s a pretty good deal I’d say. I would give it an 88+. I paired it with some pan fried veal and it went perfectly. This by the way is in the general list area (not the Vintages section) so fairly widely available.
