Medium garnet to ruby in colour with medium to medium+ intense nose.
A very pleasant drinking pinot and at under $15 you really can’t go wrong. Nice to drink with someone special sitting before a fire.
Positives: Light cedar, cloves, violets, cherry Dr. Pepper, raspberry, forest underbrush, cinnamon and Allspice. Medium minus body with low tannins, good acidity and a long length.
Drink now or over the next 2 years on its own or pair it with roasted duck.
