* Raspberry and black cherry notes
* Full flavored
After 3 hour decant: Cherry
After 6 hour decant: Cherry and raspberry
Taste: Tannin mouthfeel
After 3 hour decant: much smoother
After 6 hour decant: mellow and watery
I preferred the nose after a 6 hour decant and the taste after a 3 hour decant. I found it to have a mild flavor, not full flavored as the bottle states. The 3 hour decant left the tannins smooth and the mild fruit flavor became more prevalent. This is the type of the wine that allows the food to take center stage when paired with a meal. For me, this wine would pair well with chicken or a pork chop dish. I enjoy a nice light bodied red, so pinot noirs are often my go to wine with a weekday meal. I will definitely purchase this one again.
