Medium light ruby in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose.

A simple fruit driven Pinot that is deserving at its price

Positives: This wine features a light smoky note, cranberry, cherry, rhubarb & strawberry. Medium body, mild tannins with good acidity & a fairly long length.

Negatives: Some heat coming from the 14.1% alcohol.

Drink now or over the next 3 years on its own or pair it with tuna sashimi.

Tasted: 12 February 2014

Very nice medium-bodied Pinot with dominant notes of sour cherry cola and strawberry backed up by earth, smoke, and hints of vanilla, with a certain spiciness on the finish; solid structure, if a bit grainy, which detracts from the overall experience.
