Despite its oakiness and heavy-handedness on that hat front alone, this is a lovely example of pinot noir rife with...

This is a straightforward, sweetish, pleasant but not highly structured California pinot with bright cherry pie...

A sweet-sour, oak-drenched red of little varietal or regional character. Tasted March 2015.

Much more sophisticated than I thought. Smoky and gamey. Quite rich but composed and structured. Creamy fruit compote with a long smooth finish.

Not a typical varietal or regional character & this will appeal to those that like the sweeter red style wines

Description: Light ruby with garnet overtones in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose. This wine features smoked-caramelized oak, maraschino cherry, cinnamon, vanilla and bramble pie. Full body with low tannins and acidity and an average length.

Negatives: Too sweet for me and the 14% alcohol is noticeable

Drink now on its own or pair it with Chinese BBQ Ribs

Tasted: 10 April 2015

Score: 7/10, Value: 6/10 Total: 13/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 2.5+
