Garnet with ruby highlights, with aromas of dark cherry, plums and raspberry and a dry finish that comes from lovely, balanced acidity and silky, smooth tannins. Richer in flavour and aroma than the color suggests, it pairs well with richer fish—salmon, or grilled sardines—or soft cheeses.

I just bottled this a couple of days ago so it’s really early. Easy to make no issues. I tasted at bottling and was surprised how dark it was. The flavor is rich and full. The commercial Pinot Noir’s I’ve tried are lighter in color and less robust. Looking forward to trying it after it’s had time to age.
California Pinot Noir Wine Kit - Master Vintner Sommelier Select
This was a quality wine kit that made a tasty green Pinot I just bottled. However, a kit of this price could have included a skin pack or additional tannin. I’m still waiting to see how it opens up after bottle aging a bit, but for the price I would’ve just liked to see a little more depth and complexity to the kit. Overall, I would still recommend this kit, but with the premium description, it did leave me wanting a bit more.
This is my fourth Pinot, but the first time I'd upgraded to the "Ca Pinot". They're both great, but this one is step up. Great all around wine... very tasty at bottling and amazing after just a couple of months. Will buy again!
Even though I usually wait minimally 6 months to a year after bottling reds I opened a bottle for a sneek peak. Rich, fruity with a full flavor even at 3 months. Can hardly wait until 6 months. YUM.
