A pretty and very pinot nose of red and dark berry fruit leads to delicious, round and reasonably well detailed flavors that offer a balanced finish of acceptable length. This isn't especially complex but it's unreasonable to expect a whole lot more at this price point.
Score: 88, Editor's Choice | November 1, 2011 | Wine Enthusiast
A really nice wine, showing the generosity and sheer sexiness that Pinot Noir can offer. With a silky mouthfeel, it has expansive flavors of raspberry and cherry jam, orange zest, vanilla, cinnamon and sandalwood. One of the best Pinots on the market at this price, and easy to find. Editor's Choice. -S.H.
