This is one of the best moderately-priced Pinot Noirs I've encountered. Flavorful, fragrant, complex, and soft.
Medium ruby with a slight ambering at the rim. Engaging nose with lots of stuff going on: Soft, sappy cherries, peat moss, maple syrup, root beer, and crushed stone. Instantly mouth-filling, with ripe, dried sweet cherry syrup, smoked meat, lots of stony minerals, and a smoky not-quite-as-sharp-as-graphite-but-still-darkish component that clings to the sides of the mouth. Lengthy finish that you wish would be even longer. Fairly full body. A teensy bit of tannin. My only quibble is that the acidity is lower than I'd ideally like. A-. So much more enjoyable than 50% of the Burgundy Premier Crus out there at double the price. Was $22.99 from WineAccess.com.
