Mark West Pinot Noir is a delightful treat that everyone deserves to indulge any night of the week. Expect a wonderful swirl of sweet notes of fruit, such as blackberry, mixed with a smoky richness that mirrors a deep and dark chocolate. The wine was aged in French and Hungarian Oak, which explains the full-bodied flavor, paired with the sweetness that you get from the dark chocolate notes.
This wine has a high alcohol by volume percentage at 13.5%, so a glass or so is just enough to get you feeling good on a summer night on the back porch with your girlfriends paired with a nice salmon and pasta dish. Look into treating yourself to a bottle of Mark West Pinot Noir next time you are in the mood for a nice, sweet wine with a full-bodied backing.
