Gypsy Red Vqa>

    My Review: A pale, light red that's bursting with fresh berries and acidity. A hint of mushroom and spice adds a little complexity. More juicy fruit on the finish makes this a good food wine. I preferred it a little chilled. Score: 82/100

      Red Truck Pinot Noir 2009

      California

        My Review: An earthy wine with lots of sour cherry and a little liquorice on the nose. It's definitely a warm climate style of Pinot in that it's smooth and quite fruity. There are some very soft tannins and a hint of something sweet on the finish. Score: 80/100
