    Winemaker's Notes:

    Scintilla is a robust wine, exhibiting aromas of black cherry and caramel. It boasts a pleasing flavor profile of cherry soda, chocolate-covered fruit, and a hint of linalool. Brilliant in hue, this is a wine filled with a mixture of tart red fruit and voluptuous black fruit. A wine well suited for rich food.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Medium ruby color; deep briary aromas with dark raspberry and cranberry notes; rich mix of dark fruit flavors, with tea and cola notes; fine grained tannins; good structure and balance; long finish. Deep, dark fruit-driven Pinot with very fine tannns. Needs time to open up.

    I love how this wine pops when I drink it. I highly recommend it.

    Found it to be light bodied with little fruit and short finish. A nice wine for the price though.

    I'm not usually a fan of Pinot Noirs, but this one was quite decent - much better than the more expensive Pali Keefer Ranch.

    Only opened on bottle of the 2 I bought. The nose was horrible! It tasted ok. It's on its way out. Would not buy again. Would like a refund.
