Flat Rock have been consistently, quietly making varietal Pinot Noirs for a long time now. This one is no exception. Garnet in color with nice soft red berry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice soft red berries to match the nose. Think raspberry and strawberry notes along with some rustic flavors. On the medium length finish the wine displays some soft tannins and acidity. This is a soft well made pinot. If your looking for a gentle wine to compliment something like salmon, or a wine that is a good introduction to Pinot Noir this is an excellent choice. I would give it an -88. The price is starting to creep up there. If you want something with a little more complexity on the finish checkout Flat Rock’s Gravity Pinot Noir.
