The Brown truck arrived today with a box full of these. They were on sale so I decided to pull the trigger on 6. I probably should have let this one rest a few days, but there are more in case it shows poorly.
Slightly more opaque than what I was expecting from Pinot Noir. The nose is airy and uplifting, with strawberry, that certain Pinot scent that I get and some elderberry. The palate is exactly what I was expecting, New World all the way but not in a powerful, jammy way. Smooth strawberry with a lithe vanilla stripe and more of that wild berry fruit. The acidity is on pointe, just a nudge every now and then. The mouthfeel is great with some ever so slight tannins swirling around. Cherry/Strawberry cooler happens on the finish with that sourness that is really okay in Pinot. My mouth feels a tad dry from the acidity/tannins when it’s all said and done. I like this wine and am serving it with some smoked pulled pork that I just finished. The acidity is perfect to counter the fattiness and smoke from the meat. I’m going with 90 points here and for the $11 I paid, it’s a 5 star wine. Drink now till 2024. Salut….
