Is this the world’s best value in Pinot? Not really, BUT it is a great opportunity to grab a crowd-pleasing red at a good price. And to have all of the yummy features associated with Shiraz in a lighter-style wine. No less calories or alcohol but this Pinot feels more lighthearted/playful than most of today’s popular reds. Perfect for almost any food or event. And what’s not to like about a hit of California at this time of year!
Wine style: Rich Red
