Feudo Arancio Pinot Noir 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Intense red with hints of violet. Vibrant bouquet of blackberries and strawberries with hints of wood and black and white pepper. Mature and full-bodied with aromatic elegance and a hint of spice. Balance of aromas and fruitness makes it distinct. Pairs well with roasts, red meats and pastas with meat sauces.

Sage, basil and cherries on the nose. Not overly complex, but there's a good spice here and a bit of cherry cola. Great value.

Sandalwood and cherries in the nose. Hint of vanilla, saffron, and cardamom. The mouth is well rounded, with big fruit that tapers off nicely into a smooth finish. More tannic than other pinots I've had lately.

Light nose of cherry and mint. Lovely chocolate and raspberries with moderate acidity and tannins. Slight oaky creamy finish. Great wine for the price.

Alcohol was strong at first, but calmed down after a bit. Cherries and good body for a pinot noir. Great value.

tasted tobacco, chocalate and cherry flavors - a standard pinot, nothing really special but nothing wrong either!

oh my gosh! Are you kidding me? I LOVE this wine. Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. A full body.. and yet so lite on the palate... wow.. love it! Full of character. Tantalizing after taste. Sensational.
