Au Contraire Pinot Noir 2017 Review

This is an oaky and big-ish Pinot Noir. The palate is sweet and ripe, and smells like macerated cherries and prunes. The acidity is low, making it a heavier wine. It’s not really a food wine, since the acidity is low, but it has an adorbs label with an elephant and a mouse that would make this a good gift for a host that isn't as into wine as they are into labels.
