So, my wife and I opened this bottle recently and thought to ourselves: "there is nothing wrong with it." But - that just put it into context for us... it wasn't "great." The color is right and the aroma is where it needs to be for a CA pinot, but the mouthfeel is too soft, too squishy and the taste is too sweet. We both wished for a bit more acidity and complexity. This will do for our "random Tuesday nights," but we'll keep searching for that special pinot.
One of my favorite Pinots
This is a very good Pinot at a great price. It is perfect for an every day dinner with a steak off the grill.
Another Great Pick
After enjoying Zinfandel's and other Pinot's, I wanted to try different Lots. This one is very smooth on the tongue. I'll include this in my orders whenever available.
This is a great mid week Pinot without compromising great flavor. Nice finish as well.
My biggest criticism with Pinot Noirs these days is that they are nothing more than fruit bombs. I was mentally preparing myself for that when I uncorked this bottle. Boy was I wrong! It had the perfect balance of fruit and a bit of oak and tobacco. It paired nicely with the wild salmon that I had for dinner. And rather then my post dinner scotch, I ended up drinking this with my post dinner cigar. It was such a nice pairing. I will defnitely have to order more.
Where have you been all my life?
I’m an Oregon wine girl, who’s tasted my share of pinots - this is everything I want from a Pinot Noir - it’s so balanced and a great price. This is a happy bottle of wine.
A delightful wine.
This is a great wine for every night of the week. It is an excellent value.
Great wine for a great price. Very pleasant.
One of our Go-To favorites. Have ordered this 5 times.
