A little smoky oak on the nose over some sweet apricot tones. Red berry fruits all topped with vanilla and spice notes. Round and lush in the mouth with fairly intense slightly candied red cherry fruit. The acid sticks out a bit but helps to add some tension on the palate. The finish is modest and clean with a touch of wood framing the echo of the red fruit on the palate. Easy drinking and popularly styled. 86pts

My first bottle of a more complex--and more expensive--pinot noir. I recognize this is more dynamic than cheaper noirs, but I'm not sure I'm enjoying this more. Quite acidic compared to less expensive examples. I think my appreciation will grow as time goes on.

My rating is based on price & review readings cuz tasting is virtual. Probably will find it in New Orleans area @ Dorignac's & Martin's Wine Cellars for actual tasting. Seems like a best buy!

Balanced, elegant, not overripe or overly showy, but just a nice, appetizing, traditional Pinot.

A little one-dimensional, this soft Pinot has forward flavors of cherries, raspberries, cola, vanilla, mint and smoke. It's an easy wine to like, with a silky texture and clean, spicy finish.

Breathe in the oak and apple wood smoke, breathe out the scents of cherry skin. This wine is tight and light in body, yet there's a gelatin thickness backing up the texture. The fruit is shut down and needs to grow into that texture - as it may well do over the coming year.

Offers a savory mix of dried berry, sage, cedar and mineral flavors. Medium-bodied and well-balanced, ending with dried herb notes. Drink now through 2015.

Intense aromas of cherries and black raspberries followed by subtle aromas of rose petals and spice; rich, full-bodied texture with a smooth, long finish.

Kenwood has done a very good job crafting a delicate, lighter-bodied Pinot that's rich in real varietal flavor. Polished cherry, cola, pomegranate, coffee, rhubarb and Asian spice flavors, with a balanced finish.

Flavorful aromas of fresh raspberries and cherries followed by subtle notes of vanilla and cola; excellent acid balance with smooth tannins and a lingering finish. - Winery
