Schug Pinit Noir

This is a California (Sonoma Coast) wine, that I ended up with twice during the holidays. The first time was at a company gathering, the second was when I got it as a gift. Its a good wine with a prominent smokey flavor, but not high tannins.

Th company gathering was at a high end restaurant, but it was served a dining room temperature. Once I chilled the bottle I got at home, I was much more satisfied. This is also a wine that truly needs to breath to mellow. Though not expensive, it is at the close to my high end for everyday wine. Out of 10, I'll go a strong 6, pushing 7, with the right preparation.
