Pino is a new Oregon entry from the Bronco Wine Company. It delivers the goods, with chunky cherry fruit done in a bold, clean, full-flavored style. It's got small amounts of Syrah and Maréchal Foch in the blend, probably for color and spice, which works quite well. This is a fine everyday mealtime option with versatility to spare.
