    He said: Clear light ruby red color. Tart cherry and earthy bouquet initially with a hit of alcohol. Nice cherry taste that continues into medium finish. Light bodied with nice bouquet and taste through the finish. This is an “OK” Pinot Noir…there is nothing wrong with it, but there is nothing outstanding about it either. So would I buy another bottle…probably not.

    She said: First sniff knocked my socks off, but the bouquet faded as time went on but still was good. The taste followed suit but did not excite me. Nice acidity, light to medium bodied and moderate tannins that lasted into medium long finish. Nice Pinot Noir but not memorable. Some wines call to me this one does not.
