Mark West Pinot Noir California 2006
A good pinot noir at its price point. Better than many California pinot's twice the price. Bright cherry, raspberry and strawberry dominate. Some preserves and vanilla as well
A little too alcoholic in the finish imo.. I don't like the burn in the finish.. However lay it down for a couple of years and it may mature and resolve that issue.. It has a good full bodied varietal flavor but lacks complexity which may again come with laying down for a couple of years.. Unfortunately I have not tasted a pinot noir under $20 that is worth drinking to date.. You want a good pinot you have to pay for it.
Good wine, nice and light and very easy to sit and drink a few glasses...or a bottle. Very good for the price. Pants likes this one too.
Not as good as the 2005. Different taste.
