Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (87)

Review date: March 10, 2011

Wine Review: This affordable bright red Pinot is Very Good and as you Pinot fans know, it is rare to find a Very Good Pinot for under $20 these days. It opens with a spicy strawberry bouquet with a hint of pomegranate. On the palate, this wine is light bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is a pleasant mild black raspberry with a hint of plum and dark chocolate. The finish is dry and its easy going tannins are food friendly. This Pinot is a nice everyday offering and would pair well with barbecue chicken. Enjoy – Ken
