A juicy wine with lovely sour cherry aromas and some baking spices. Supple texture. Medium body. Drink while watching that classic movie Sideways again.

Tony rated this wine as 90/100
Drink Wine and Giggle Gals rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The Drink Wine and Giggle Gals closed their eyes and imagined Mark West based on the taste profile of his pinot noir...
Mark is tall dark and charismatic with a rugged oaky frame. He is rich, smooth and earthy with a hint of spice and even if you press him he won't tell you if he's attached. He'll just smile that enigmatic smile and say he's a typical pinot noir, a man with many possibilities. After dancing the night away with him and sharing your secrets you'll wake up and chances are Mark West will be gone. But his name will still be on your lips...the Drink Wine and Giggle Gals like Mark West. A lot.
Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A medium bodied easy to drink Pinot Noir. It's soft and will go with a wide variety of foods. Flavors of plums, spice, brown sugar and oak.
Paula Bernardino rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

I have a soft spot for Pinot Noir from California. I tasted this one at the 2013 Montral Wine Show and ordered a few bottles through private importation. This pinot noir has a light oak smell and a black cherry flavour. I paired it with emmental swiss cheese and bread.
Cyndi rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:

Overwhelming oak...too spicy.
