Fruity on the nose, a bit light on the palate. Still ok overall. Went well with BBQ sausages on the grill.
I was steered toward this wine as a potential "Thanksgiving" wine. I am glad I did not serve it then. I guess my tastes run a little more toward a fruit forward pinot. I just did not see much flavor to the wine.
Not sure what was wrong with this one but I couldn't drink it and others felt that it was sad also.
Definitely not the best PN on here. 2007 has shown to be a very tricky year for Oregon Pinot Noir. Rain was especially heavy toward the end of the season creating very affected grapes. This example is no different. A thin body is followed by an almost astringent sourness, very little fruit character can shine through the immensely mouth-puckering aftertaste. What a shame.
not bad at all, somewhat thin but nice fruit flavor and very drinkable, not bad to have around the house as a house wine for family and friends and that is never a bad thing. I give it a B
External Reviews for Firesteed Pinot Noir Wv
The wine is richly aromatic like a warm berry cobbler topped with cold vanilla ice cream. Lively in the mouth each sip is brimming with black cherry and raspberry flavors that continue through to the richly rewarding finish.Winery.
