Value Pinots 11/2012

19. Parducci Small Lot Blend Pinot Noir (2009)

« Prev Next » 19 of 24
This has a rather assertively woody nose of sapwood and cedar with an underlay of rhubarb and spicy red cranberry fruit. This is surprisingly light in the mouth and quite fresh with clear, transparent raspberry and cranberry fruit framed with lightly spicy wood accents. The wood builds a bit on the back end but remains unobtrusive right through the slightly austere finish. Shows a savory note from the wood and a hint of vanilla. The nose here is much more oaky than the palate and while simple, this is a pleasantly fresh and brisk wine. 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.
