Not a very good wine.

2/5 stars on the Linda Scale

This wine has a slight bite, but somehow it is completely ok.  It is probably just a bit dry.  1 glass is ok, but 2 glasses is a bit much.

Overall I would not recommend this wine.  It isn’t something you can fully enjoy.  You would not want to serve it to guests since you would need to cut them off after one glass.

This Pinot Noir is good I guess.  I guessed wrong.

D’Autrefois, I didn’t take any notes on this one, but I think I rather liked it.  There are no negatives about this one that I can remember.  I kind of wish I had another bottle to try right now.  On the other hand it isn’t memorable.  I am going to take that as a very good sign.  A drinking wine that isn’t too much of anything.

I am downgrading this wine from a non-memorable 4 to a 2.  The tart cherry flavor in it does not make this wine a crowd favorite.  I took this wine to a party very excited to share it and it did not go over well.

I myself could only manage to drink a single glass.  This was a very disappointing wine.

Acrobat has a slight bite to it.  Slight headache the next day.  Taste is not worth the headache.

I would not serve this at dinner.

Kudos has a very tart taste to it.  It is much better cold, but even then a second glass was not good.  It has a weird taste and a bit of a bite.

Do not serve this wine to quests.
