Articles About AEQUOREA
2012 AEQUOREA Seafarer San Luis Obispo County Pinot Noir
14.5% alc., $38. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass with an unfiltered appearance. Aromas of oak-kissed cherry and spice. Nicely composed with mid weight flavors of cherry pie, raspberry and cranberry with a noticeable oak sheen. The tantalizing red fruits leave a pleasing impression on the mid palate and expand through the finish that offers some persistence. Very creamy the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Score: 89. Reviewed April 19, 2014 ARTICLE »
