A silky, delicate, almost lightweight Pinot Noir, this is a pretty wine, the antithesis of full-bodied and lusty. Yet it still packs in plenty of flavor and complexity, ranging from cola and sassafras to cherries, mushrooms, brown sugar and earth. Drink now.
This easy-drinking Zinfandel starts off with heady, almost Port-like aromas of berries and spice, then continues that theme on the palate, but with reasonable alcohol levels and moderate body. Chocolate, mixed berry and spice flavors trail away on the finish.
Translucent in color, silky in the mouth, this Mendocino-grown Pinot shows ripe, forward flavors and crisp acidity. You’ll find pie-filling cherries and rhubarb, with a cola and root beer soda finish.
