An excellent value in Pinot Noir. This tied for first place out of eight wines in a blind tasting (my score and the groups). Garnet in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose has black cherries and spice. On the palate, the black cherries come thru with a bit of anise on the finish. This has a lovely texture. Bold but not over done. This is drinking well now and should drink well for at least another three to five years. It will work well with food, fried chicken would be a nice match.
