Pretty smooth Pinot if a bit thin
Spicy aroma while surprisingly smooth on your palette. Perfect Pinot for the price!
Two and a half glasses
Surprisingly smooth Pinot at this price point, and a twist-top to boot! Lip-smacking cherry flavors, though not too fruity. Has an earthy balance, sort of a root beer finish. Great casual wine for gatherings.
The flavor was strong and light for a Pinot Noir but easy to sip on after dinner

Perhaps you thought the 2011 vintage of this wine was a bit too tart. (Remember those sour cherries and dried cranberries? Delicious, I thought). The 2012 vintage is still quite light, with softer, riper fruits. In the Venn diagram of flavors, we’re approaching the point where tart red fruits meet juicier black fruits. Enjoy with roast pork.

Bright and tangy, with juicy cranberry and raspberry flavors on the lively frame, lilting pleasantly on the finish. Drink now.
Terrific value Pinot Noir — it’s rare to find such bright fruit and freshness in a Pinot under $10, especially from Oregon! Intense cherry and cranberry fruit notes dominate on the palate. Great for pre-dinner cocktails, salmon rolls or light chicken dishes. Food pairing: pasta, poultry, seafood Flavor type: fruit-forward Body type: light Finish: crisp
