Not the usual Oregon pinot. It has big red fruit flavors and is more similar to Northern California pinots than ones from Oregon. In the backround there are some dried fruit flavors, but they are overpowered. Oregon pinots are usually more than $20, so we jumped at this one. Unfortunately, the cheap price meant boring wine.

Ted says... Don't Buy

This pinot noir has big, cool red fruit, typical of Oregon, but that’s it—the rest of the wine is flat and dull. For $15 or even a few dollars more, you could get a much richer and delicious pinot noir.

What happens if the 2 guys do not agree. You appear to be offering reviews where you both agree. I suggest giving the reviews where you do not agree as well. They would be fun to read. Anyway keep up the good work. I bought a Lambrusco at TJs yesterday and am wondering if you tasted it and if so what you thought.

We do have a rating for when we don’t agree. Just wait for the 2 Guys showdown. It’s coming soon.
