A fragrant, light, zesty Pinot Noir. Varietally true, and fun to gulp, this wine is the antithesis of a "serious" Pinot. But it's good anyway.
Light ruby color with a garnet tinge. Lots going on in the nose: tart but sappy cherry, sandstone, a raw beef component, and a whiff of pine needles resting in moist soil. Slams the palate with very pure-tasting cherry fruit and lots of stony minerals. B one-dry and loaded with zesty acids too. But the flavors fade pretty quickly, and there's not much concentration. Compare this to a good quality Bourgogne Rouge. B. I think I got this for around $20 a bottle from Wineaccess.com.
