Fruit driven Pinot on the nose and palate with raspberries, strawberries and cherries. Not much of the earthy character of some Pinots. Nice long but slightly hot finish.

The 2010 Bonterra Pinot Noir has attractive aromas of black cherry and toasted oak on the nose, and red currant and dates on the palate. It is a light to medium bodied, on the acidic side, fruity wine; with refined tannins (decant for 15-30 min) and a medium finish. It is food friendly; drink now to 2017. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89 pts – recommended based on both, value and quality. Tasted March/13.
