This was offered at a local wine store. They listed the price at $20 which is a good value for a Pinot of this quality. It is lighter in style, especially for California and that seemed popular with the crowd. Light ruby in color, clear and bright. The nose is slightly earthy with a macerated cherry quality. Very nice. On the palate, there are slight tannins. Cherries with a pretty silky texture. A slight bitter note on the finish. All in all this is a very pretty wine.
