simply awful. the nose actually has some nice terroir, but this is just revolting. Looks like a rose. might need 100-150 years of cellaring. In all seriousness though, this wine actually goes well with sesame sticks.
Literally looks and tastes diluted. But a little less acidic than its 2005 pinot.
i think most of the raters here drank this vintage far too young. as of October, 2009 it's very pleasant. perhaps not the richest or most complex of pinots, but it's easily worth the ten dollars i paid. give it another year or two in the cellar and it may drink quite well.
A cheap Pinot. Not a whole lot else to it. It's fruity and light on the nose, but pretty shallow beyond that.
Good pinot noir for the price and available in the local grocery.
