Garnet red. Dark berry fruit and plums, with hints of smokey toasty notes. Ripe and approachable tannins with good fruit weight on the mid palate.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Couleur rouge grenat. Saveurs de baies foncées et de prunes avec des soupçons de notes rôties et fumées. Tannins murs et approchables avec un bon poids de fruits sur le palais intermédiaire.

Dark berry fruit and plums, with hints of smokey toasted notes.

The People's Pinot Noir displays a rich and velvety palate. This wine shows ripe and approachable tannin stuctured with good fruit weight on the mid palate.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
