One member of our tasting panel stated, "If Pinot Noir was grown in the southern Rhône valley, this is what it would taste like." This Pinot displays that down-home, funky, shroomy, barnyardy goodness. Some may shiver at the thought of it, and others simply smile or curl their shoulders up to their ears in a little glimpse of earthly delight. It shows stewed blackberry, cherry, plum and a little Dr. Pepper to boot. An outstanding showing of an old-world wine from a new-world region.
