This is an excellent value. For around $18, it is hard to get a better Pinot anywhere. Not that it is amazing or mind blowing, but it is correct and affordable. That is what Bourgogne should be about. Purple/ruby in color. The nose is dusty with cherries, powdered cherry drink and slight spice. This has a very nice medium bodied, silky texture. Cherries and sour cherries on the palate. Slight depth. Good balance. Nice finish.
