Wine Review–Westbend Le NoirienPosted in : Pinot Noir, Red Wine on by : becca

This pinot noir has quite the fiery nose with a strong alcohol presence, plum, and leather. I taste lots of extra ripe plum, some raw sugar and a bit of bourbon. It is tart with a light sweetness on some sips. I might want it to mature longer to get rid of some of the unevenness but it’s still good.
