Not without its flaws, this is nonetheless a decent wine for things like barbecue, when all you need is something clean, dry and fruity, at a good price. It’s a fairly tannic wine, with coffee and cherry flavors and zesty Zinfandel spice.
Lots of upfront fruit in this crisp, silky wine. It’s one-dimensional, but for the price, a pretty good value in a Pinot Noir from a top appellation. The cherry, cola and currant flavors are complexed with smoky oak.
