Reviews and Ratings

Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Deep red opaque colour which is most untypical for a Pinot. The nose is forthcoming with soft cherry and blackberry. A very easy drinking, palate pleasing wine without much complexity. Well made with clean flavours. Lacks a certain Pinot typicity. Try it with a pork belly and calamari paella.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This is a statement Pinot Noir- most aspects are a bit' bigger than life' - deep in colour; high in alcohol; on the heavier end of medium bodied. Black cherry on the nose and slightly candied palate. Ripe and round with a hot nose and a hot, medium finish. Tasted October 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Ripe and richly flavoured. Aromas of cherry, smoky oak, leather and spice. Medium bodied and medium+ acidity with bit of heat from the alcohol. Lots of ripe cherry hints and some leathery spice on the finish. Enjoy with grilled mushrooms or grilled pork.
From Santa Barbara County, Sonoma County wine region, Böen 2017 Pinot Noir is produced by Joseph Wagner. Look for rich cherry fruit, ripe raspberry, dried herb and savoury spice flavours on this silky PN. Pair with lamb tagine. - Community Wine Reviews
