16. Trinity Oaks Pinot Noir California (2010)

« Prev Next » 16 of 24
This shows some nice nutty, cocoa-dusted oak along with creamy cola over lightly spiced cherry fruit. Nicely structured in the mouth, this shows pretty good acidity and some fine supporting tannins all wrapped up in spicy, oak-influenced flavors of blackberry and blueberry. The wood is a bit too aggressive on the finish, which also shows a touch of heat and some interesting grapefruit notes, but this still delivers a lot of bang for the buck. 85pts

I see many of them in my local stores and just can not conclude from the labels what I am suppose to expect from each individual wine. Your analysis has been helpful in guiding me to what I would like.
