Aaron: I smelled a raspberry tart with some oak coatings on this pinot, followed by a mild, enjoyable flavor. I felt this was more bitter than sweet and don’t exactly know what to say about it other than this is a mild and easy-to-drink wine. This isn’t intense and doesn’t have a lot going on but works well for parties (especially if you don’t know the meal pairings). 87 points
Teri: Don’t be fooled by the semi-oaky smell, the taste is quite different. Full flavors of ripe cherries and strawberries and a lighter overlay of cranberries makes this wine great for parties and many wine drinkers. The long finish allows for great parings with multiple meal types. 90 points
