    I love this Pinot. I don’t think you can ask for a better one at the this price. This well structured and balanced wine has cherries leading other red fruits with a medium (+) finish.

    Beautiful red garnet color that shimmered in the light reflecting from the glass. Aromas of red berries, strawberries, hints of vanilla and spice. Nice ripe tannins and balanced acidity. Great wine at a great price.

    Delightful cherry-berry flavors abound in this simple yet satisfying Pinot Noir. Great value for the money, and it’s great on its own or with whatever you’re serving. Take a bottle to the next party you’re invited to – but don’t expect there to be any left at the end of the night!

    Bold and balanced with beautiful red fruit notes. Love the body of this wine and the smooth tannins that lead to a lingering finish. Overall it’s a beautiful Pinot Noir at an unbeatable price!

    I bought and tasted a bottle of Arrogant Frog Pinot Noir at a Wine & Spirits Shop in Lancaster-area PA (U.S.) and it was quite good. It was even more satisfying and complex than my typical faves from Willamette Valley, OR.
