It pours a dark garnet and has aromas of strawberry jam and subdued cranberries. It had a light-to-medium body, typically of Pinot Noir. On the palette, I get dry plum, black cherry, hints of spice, a touch of oak, and a savory, earthy finish. The tannins are present, but fairly light.
This is a solid, savory and earthy Pinot Noir which would fit well with duck or some lighter game dishes.
Drink This: if you want a quality Pinot Noir on the savory, earthy side of things. It's only around $13, making it a great value and perfect for when the mood strikes for a dry, savory red.
Don't Drink This: if you are looking for a sweeter, red wine.
