Tasting:

    He said: Dark ruby red color. Full (overflowing is a better term to describe it) of damp earth and oak aromas. Strong silky smooth ripe fruit taste that goes on through a chewy lingering finish. What a wonderful treat to fine in the Newark Airport!!! If you looking for a good Red Burgundy this sure fills the bill in my book.

    She said: A great bouquet twirled through the air as the waiter poured the wine and it was followed by luscious flavors, medium body and the “just-right” dryness associated with good Pinot Noir. With good acidity and medium tannins it was a delicious with the chicken sandwich as it was sipping after the lunch. As good as it was I think $45. is a lot of money for a bottle of wine and would not classify it as a bargain
