Plain nose, kinda medicinal smell, but not to pregnant. Strong, good color, ruby red, even a bit darker than that. Excellent taste...for my taste! I made a word joke! It isn't pregnant in any sense. It is well balanced, just half way between sweet and half dry. Aftertaste doesn't bother me at all, which is a great thing, because even in some of the best regarded wines I don't like the aftertaste. Oh,... well, in some of them.
Not one of the greats, but totally drinkable. Absolute GREAT price to quality ratio. Espresso Style recommends Pinot Noir from Cramele Halewood.
