I really liked this particular Pinot Noir and it was pretty cheap at just $14. I think I got one of their last bottles of the 2007 at Specs, because the rest were 2009s and I do see their advertised price for a 2009 as $14, which is what they charged me. I see the 2007 vintage is sold out most everywhere, but if you get a chance to try it out, I say go for it. I tasted a bold body, red currant, lots of cherry, earthiness and a good acidity that makes this wine very versatile. The tannins are velvety and really make for a great finish. I would recommend drinking this wine with pork, beef, and any kind of meat really.
This is a very light Pinot Noir. It hails from Sonoma County, California in the Russian River Valley area. I recommend drinking this win as of 2012, it’s mature enough to enjoy, doesn’t need anything except a meal to drink it with. I would describe this as a grape jelly and dried fruit sort of flavor. It has a light to medium body and just a tiny hint of heat. It’s refreshing for a red wine and newbie friendly.
