A Wisconsin Pinot Noir - yep. Who knew? Fifteen bucks with some distribution in Illinois, I snagged this at Binny's.
Cherry cola and a bit of trashy funkiness on the nose - good stuff.
A bit bigger than I expected, a bit sweeter, but at the same time undeniably Pinot Noir. Cherry, cola, a bit of cedar, and a big punch of black licorice.
Black licorice - quite strongly in fact - lingers on the finish.
I can see this wine polarizing people - it has some of the varietal funk I like, but it's likely a tad too big and sweet for most fans. That being said, if you're interested in trying a wine from Wisconsin you could do much worse. When you consider that this is a $15 Pinot Noir from an odd region, this is a solid deal.
