    He said: Opened 30-minutes before drinking. Crystal clear, dark ruby red color. OUTSTANDING strong damp earth, wet leather and dark fruit aromas. The intensity and richness of the bouquet is a VERY dramatic start to this wine and really sets the stage for what’s to come. Intense, full body, raspberry and cherry taste with dry, dusty minerals that carry all the way through to the very end of the long finish. Absolutely fantastic!!! It was GREAT from the very first sniff all the way through to the end of the last sip. Everyone at the table savored it to the very end of the last sip. This is a MEMORABLE Pinot Noir and it was delicious with the pork loin. It was simply an OUTSTANDING (with fireworks and lots of cheering crowds) wine value.

    She said: An amazing wine! The first sniff was divine but so was the last an hour later. the same can be said for the earthy fruit flavor. With a medium body and smooth feel it was balanced and delicious into the long finish. It was fabulous with the dinner and equally good sipping afterwards. Although not a bargain price (our “Bargain Price” is less than $15.) this was so good I STRONGLY RECOMMEND IT, especially with a roast pork dinner. This was a MEMORABLE wine and is a VERY GOOD value for the price.
