Amour Fou Pinot Noir 2015

Lot 18/The Tasting Room, $17


Aaron: Huckleberry, blackberry, strawberry (you’re probably noticing a theme).  There was just a ton of juicy berries on this Pinot.  Th surprisingly hearty tannins were a little too chalky for me but did help the flavor linger for a while.  Unfortunately, this lingering ends in a watery finish with only a hint of strawberry and leafy vines. 89 points

Teri: Baking spice and cherry on the nose make way for a slightly tart flavor up front after the first sip. I tasted mushrooms, moss, bright and slightly unripe cherry and soft white pepper. This would pair well with mushroom dishes, chicken or items with soy sauce. I like the blend of the earthy and mild fruit flavors. 90 points.
