Oreana 2005 Central Coast Pinot Noir

Darker-than-medium garnet color.

Smells of raspberry, blueberry, plum, then oak and alcohol are noticeable at the end.

Blackberry and prune flavors and warm alcohol.

A big punchy fruit-bomb that doesn't pretend to Burgundian character. Doesn't even attempt it. An enjoyable bottle for $19.99 so long as you're not offended by a Pinot Noir this brawny. Exuberant!
