The perfect time of year for this inexpensive pinot noir. It's light, full of spring fruits, and fun. She's on the sweeter side with strawberry being the major takeaway. You don't need a steak or big meal - just open it up on the porch after 20-30 min in the fridge. The Portrait is from South Eastern Australia and made Sam's Wine Top 100 wines of 2008. At only $15, I'll rate this a strong 7 out of 10. I'm quite happy as this is the first wine I'm reviewing from my new state of North Carolina.
