Smoky, fatty, savory nose that shows in the flavor profile. Even a wee bit floral. Grapey (no resemblance to Welch’s, pure fruit, not sugar) fruit combined with sweet, ripe, red fruits and some berries. Plenty of spice and perfect cohesion between all sweet and savory flavors mentioned. The sweetness is very pure and I liken it too honey. Very little tannin, there is a decent amount of acidity but it rarely approaches bitterness.
Best $19.95 I have spent in a while. I really like these Willamette Valley, Oregon Pinot Noirs. This wine is just too easy too like and offers up a lot for very little money. Please note the 13.6% alcohol which I think improves any wines chances of being balanced.
