A bit buttery and lactic on the nose with attractive underlying red berry fruit that’s a touch tarry and framed with rather raw vanilla and oak aromas. This is smooth and a bit chewy if small scaled in the mouth with lots of sweet, candied raspberry fruit on the mid-palate that fades on the backend and leads to tart and somewhat candied and yet bitter finish. 80pts

Enjoying this a lot right now after work. Looks great in the glass and a little heavy on the mouth for what I was expecting, but then it thins out. A lot of fruit up front but to me has a vanillia bit on the finish. After what I had before this taste like a Talley.

    I recently had this as a glass pour in a restaurant. It was tasted by all - and enjoyed by all as well. I found it surprisingly sweet for a pinot, and quite jammy. No oak, little noticeable tannins. Very drinkable, but sweeter than I would have with a meal.

    Enjoyed this more than any other Pinot so far. Very well balanced so it isn't too sweet or dry

    Displaying intense fruit flavors of strawberries, pomegranates, and cherries, balanced with delicate floral notes, Mirassou California Pinot Noir is a bright reflection of our heritage as the pioneer

    Our Mirassou California Pinot Noir displays fresh fruit flavors of pomegranates, cherries and currants with complementing aromas of strawberries, pomegranates and cherries. This wine is at its best if enjoyed within a year of release, but can age in the bottle for up to three years if carefully cellared. - Winery

    Intense flavors of strawberries, pomegranates, and cherries. These primary flavors are enhanced by secondary flavors of floral and spice characters. This wine is at its best if enjoyed within a year of release, but should be able to age in the bottle for up to three years.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine has seen explosive growth in sales and when you try it, you will understand why. Imagine, the finicky pinot noir grape, being crafted so well at such a ridiculously low price. We can't keep enough of it in the store!
