He said: Opened 30-minutes before drinking. Clear, deep garnet color. Dark fruit aromas with hints of alcohol. Pretty jammy taste (lots of current), very dry, with slightly grippy tannins and a medium-long spicy finish with a slightly firm body. Pleasant drinking and a Bargain at only $13.50. This is a nice French Pinot Noir that’s a GREAT value.
She said: Slightly opaque with thin evenly spaced zippy legs. Very mild aromas hampered by alcohol overtones which remained until the third pour. Dry and mild flavored the wine had medium body and firm tannins that was the best feature of the wine. Although it was pleasant with the dinner the wine was better sipping afterwards. At $13.50 it’s a good Pinot Noir.
