Nice garnet in color with a rustic and soft red berry nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with some lovely soft red fruits coming through, raspberries and the like along with some nice rustic over tones. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice smooth tannins and acidity. This is a lovely varietal pinot. We paired it with bbq salmon and it went very well. I would give it an 88-89. This wine is made by Magnotta.
