Screw capped. Ruby in color, clear and bright. In Pinot Noir, color often means little but this does have a very pretty lighter color. The nose has cherries, slight smoke, rhubarb and slight celery notes. It has a very soft, feminine texture. On the palate, tart cherries with a slight bitter/herbal note on the finish. 12.5% alcohol on the label. If you are looking for a bit, fruity wine, this is not that. This is a lower alcohol wine that works well with food and is better situated to the dinner table than being drunk as a cocktail. Not for everyone, but for those who are searching for this style, this is a nice value.
