Warm and ripe with a juicy, roast meaty edge and smoky, little caramelized wood tones Gains freshness in the glass with distinct floral top notes and intense warm black raspberry and ollalieberry notes that gain an exotic persimmon tone. Low acid, rich and soft, dense with a very ripe feel but fresh flavors. A bit of wood tannin is a touch out of balance and a bit too assertive. Very nice minor liquory wild red berry/cranberry flavors, then finishes with a strong herbal/rhubarb vein. Lovely baking spice notes and a touch of watermelon on the finale. A curious wine with a big feel, yet gentle and offering surprisingly fresh flavors. Delicious in a very fruity way. 89pts

Aromatic with raspberries, chalky minerals. Nice, silky texture. Full, meaty midpalate that remains in balance between game, raspberry, Bing cherry, and mineral notes. Allspice and clove emerge, coming forward in the finish. Nice wine, good balance, very good QPR.

cherries, earth, and a dustiness captures the nose, a true burgundian style. The palate offers a little pepper, strawberry, and cinnamon spice. Lighter delicate tannins, easy enjoyable finish. This was the third wine to taste at Franciscan during our wine/cheese pairing. The cheese enjoyed with this wine was a Matos Cow, a sharper cheese and was excellent with the Pinot Noir. This type of cheese released more components, and more flavors from the wine.

Wild Horse is quickly becoming one of my favorite wineries. I've always loved their low end wines but recently I've found some of their estate wines and they are outstanding. This one has a hint of spice but overall is dominated by a rich sour cherry essence. Very nice Pinot :)

Medium-bodied, with aromas of alpine forest floor, cinnamon, clove and blackberry. On the palate, this wine displays flavors of black cherry, strawberry and kola nut with a creamy mouthfeel and elegant finish. Enjoy with your favorite grilled chicken recipe.

A pretty wine in a lighter style, with earth and mocha accents adorning its lean cherry and plum fruit. It's bright and even, and though the fruit is lively, the mouthfeel is supple. It finishes dry, with pleasant herb notes.

Aromas of sandalwood, oriental spice and ripe berry. On the palate the wine has flavors of raspberry and rhubarb, with a subtle finish.

The price/quality ratio is very high. It's both a food wine and a nice drinking wine - fruity and charming.

An eight-vineyard blend of 20,000 cases or so, Wild Horse's Central coast Pinot is an admirable effort, blending forward fruit (black cherries) with darker, earthier notes of cola and spice. Light-bodied and silky-textured, drink it over the next year or so.

Light and easy, and made for drinking now. Shows plenty of charm, with dry, crisp flavors of herbs, red currants, tobacco and spices, wrapped into scoury tannins.
