Written Notes

My second tasting of this wine in recent months...this bottle much better than the previous example (see my notes below, and my previous notes on this wine). Nose: Bright cherries, with nice spice. Very pretty Palate: Simple cherries. Pretty, but simple. Very nice drinking wine. Much better than a bottle of the same wine I had a few months ago at a tasting in Medford. Rich Swanger (assistant winemaker) explained that at the time of the previous tasting, the wine had only recently been bottled (probably case of bottle shock). Very nice drinking everyday Pinot Noir. 86 points $26.00 US retail. A good buy at this price point.
