94-Points + GOLD MEDAL, Beverage Testing Institute —“Bright medium dark garnet color. Bright, toasty aromas and flavors of grilled cherries and beets, cracked pepper, and rhubarb custard with a soft, dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and a warming, charming, medium-length grilled orange and lemon, pickling spiced nuts, and sandalwood finish with crunchy tannins and moderate oak. A delicious and savory Pinot Noir for all occasions.”

93-Points, Ken’s Wine Guide —“This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from Alysian is very, very good. It opens with a fragrant black raspberry bouquet with hints of old oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very well balanced, and refined. The flavor profile is a delicious gentle black cherry with hints of plum and fine oak. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last for quite a long time. This Pinot is very food friendly and would pair well with a filet mignon.”
