This is a solid Pinot and very reasonably priced. Unfortunately, there does seem to be some smokiness to it. Is this related to the fires that ravaged California in 2020? Unknown. It is a light ruby in color, clear and bright. The nose has smoke and some nice strawberries with a touch of cranberries. light bodied. The palate seems cleaner wit cherries and strawberries. Moderate finish. This drinks well on its own and would work well with salmon. Drink over the next couple of years.
