My Rating 83 Points.
Light ruby in color with light intensity and a pink rim.
Sweet nose of cherries, strawberries, earth, spices, black pepper, red candy, light vegetables, vanilla, wood and light barnyard.
Light to medium in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Medium finish with soft tannins and black pepper.
This is an average Pinot Noir from Russian River Valley. Simple and balanced, but not complex, with a light mouthfeel. This was probably better a year or two ago.
Enjoyable with food. I paired it with a cheese plate and crackers.
13.5% alcohol by volume.
