2015 Blank Canvas California Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $12.84. Vinted and bottled by American Vines Cellars, Napa (this label term means the bottler made less than 10% of the wine and possibly did not make any of the wine). Gold Medal, 2016 Orange County Fair Wine Competition. · Light reddish purple color in the glass. Very woody and off putting nose that fails to come around with swirling. Better on the palate, with light-weight flavors of black cherry and boysenberry and noticeable oak overlay. Silky tannins make for easy drinking and some fruit rises up on the finish, but the oak treatment ruins the experience. Score: 80. Reviewed March 6, 2017 ARTICLE »

2015 Blank Canvas California Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $12.84. Vinted and bottled by American Vines Cellars, Napa, CA. Kris and Cora Riggs owners. Orange County Fair medal winner. · Light ruby red color in the glass. Aromas of cherry, raspberry, spice and redwood. Light to mid weight red-fruited flavor spectrum of strawberry, raspberry and cherry. Slightly confected with minimal oak presence. Rather shallow and easy going with modest tannins. Score: 87. Reviewed March 17, 2018 ARTICLE »
