This wine was delicious!! I sipped while I cooked and it was lovely alone and even better with my meal.
Well worth the wait! A pinot with depth and character. I opened it at dusk and it was gone before midnight. I will purchase it again. If you have not tried this, what are you waiting for?
Wonderful color and flavor
Such a beautiful color to fascinate as you linger over a glass while relaxing on the patio. Small berry flavor, lingering finish.
Solid Pinot for everyday food.
Nose was soft, subtle red cherry, ripe strawberry, hint of freshly tilled meadow soil. Body was modestly bright on acidity, smooth mouthfeel, red fruits mixed with mulled cacao and mild cola. Finish was short and mild – like a red berry frappe, hints of anise and milk chocolate. 86
03/11 -- This Saintsbury Cerise Vineyard release is elegant, refined and understated - not overpowering, but hauntingly good. Very nice balance of fruit with acid - even right out of the bottle for this relatively young wine. Aromatic nose of cherry, red fruit, and some minerality. The medium body wine is very smooth with notes of cherry, plum, and spice. The finish is satisfyingly long with that very nice spice touch. If you prefer your pinots lighter but with finesse and complexity, I think you would like this one very much
Great color, full fruit and clean finish. Terrific Pinot for the price and stands up to much pricier competitors. Definitely a re-buy.
Smooth, very nice paired with seafood
Decent pinot, adequate, not much more. a bit over rated.
The 07 Cerise was full of Bing cherries, very soft easy to drink Pinot. It was about medium bodied. I would have liked for it to have lingered longer. I am going to try it again in about a year.
A bit better but still disappointed with the way you are overrating these wines. I may try again sometime but kind of doubt it.
A REAL DISAPPOINTMENT
The Saintsbury was a real disappointment especially in light of the glowing reviews... I did not find this wine attractive in any way...
