Ripe dark red fruits, clove, dusty, and spearmint. Moderate acidity and body. Smooth finish with almost imperceptible tannins.

Yeah, yum. Real reminiscent of Burgundy. Felt rustic originally, it's opened up to be pretty clean. It's dark fruited and dense as it turns out with glimmers of dried white flowers and raspberry infused tea. It's good, it's cheap too.

Really nice Pinot. Big and plush with plenty of dark cherry notes. Good use of quality oak gives the fruit plenty of assistance with notes of a range of sweet baking spices. Lovely wine
