the comley brunette and i were at the local grocer searching for a cheap bottle of wine to enjoy with a late dinner and saw this for $6.99. interesting label. really nice price. nose was a little scarce but had hints of cherries and tobacco. the comely brunette liked the taste. i was a bit disappointed. flavors were much the same as the nose, black cherry, tobacco, medium tannins. but for me it just seemed a bit thin. the flavor disappeared too quickly and was a bit too green. it is about what i would expect for this price for a pinot noir.
