This is a great Pinot Noir. The price is right, and the taste right- full of red cherries, velvety aromas, strawberries, red fruits, violets, and chocolate. It was full bodied but not heavy or overpowering. Really enjoyed it. Paid 15.99 for it in New Canaan. Considering buying a case of it because it is that great.
The 2006 Pinot Noir is a medium-bodied wine that has smokey cherries and raspberries on the nose with red berries, cinnamon and chocolate in taste. I also had a minty taste on the back. It is very dry and the tannins are firm.
