    He said: Light ruby red color. Very light fruity bouquet. Nice berry taste and a dry earthy finish. Quite supple with an excellent balance of tannins.

    She said: Mild fruity bouquet. Slightly acidic, medium body with a smooth pleasant finish.

    Comments: At $14.99 this Pinot Noir just slips into the “Recommended” category. Its good but not great and we would definitely buy it again. I would like to try it with some mushroom dishes.
