This is a nice Pinot Noir from Oregon. Well balanced and a little bitter. Still showing lots of fruits with nice earth notes. Light and soft and good for every day.
I had this vintage a while ago and it is tasting better now with much less bitter notes.
I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.
13.6% alcohol by volume.
