Garnet in color with a mild soft red berry nose. On the mid palate this is a varietal spot on Pinot Noir. Lovely soft red berries to match the nose, strawberries and the like along with some nice rustic notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some lovely dryness and nice tannins. The wine has some nice mouth grip with the rustic notes lingering nicely. This is quite a complex wine, for the price it’s a great deal. A perfect pinot. I would give it an 88-89. Yumm.
