Was hoping for a more traditional Pinot but what I got was one with intense tea and cola notes which didn't pair well with the meal. I think if you sipped this alone it would be ok but not my style. 14% Alc/vol.

Thank you, thank you Drew for your timely posting. I had been considering buying some Coldstream Hills Pinot Noir which Carolina Wine Company has been advertising heavily. But I don't care for cola in Pinots (the tea flavor I don't mind.) Will spend my money on something else instead.

WOW what is the deal with CWC? From all the reports looks like them dudes mite be bitin' the dust.WW

I don't think so WW. They have opened a second store in Charlotte and are doing a majority of their business online presently. I would be surprised if they were in difficulty.

You were right WW. Apparently CWC is in deep financial trouble. I may be out two or three cases of wine from their storage area. We'll see how it all plays out.
