Added Feb 19 at 2:13amAlright, I'm convinced Barefoot is one of the best names in budget wine. I'm always impressed with their quality and this red blend is on point.

Barefoot Pinot Noir 2012
Added Feb 18 at 2:04amIn terms of value, this is a really nice and affordable bottle. I could pretend to write a critical critique here, but who are we kidding?

Blue Fin Pinot Noir 2009
Added Feb 27, 2012 at 11:42pm2011 - Extreme bargain basement pinot noir. It seems like it was manufactured as not to be offensive, and it works! A simple, straight forward beverage that is certainly worth the price. 2016, Feb, Almost four years later, and this is still around the same price. Nothing to really add, you could do a lot worse than this Trader Joe's budget saver. Nice ripe red fruit--a bit thin.

Added May 24, 2014 at 3:30amOne of those budget pinot blends that falls on the sweet and jammy side, but my damn, this thing is quite drinkable. Not pure pn, but it will get you through the night.

Added Apr 26, 2014 at 4:27amSomehow I'm the first review on a widely distributed wine? Must not get distracted by this terrible site! This is a nice, full-bodied pinot--very berry forward. Wanted more from this bottle--especially at the price point.

Added Apr 25, 2014 at 5:09amThis is still what I would classify as "entry-level," but it is certainly a good value. What is has: vanilla, cream, light tropical fruit, and some astringency. Good value.

Added Apr 22, 2014 at 12:48amSo...trying my best to venture beyond my favorite style (pinot noir). This petite sirah from the Livermore Valley reminds me of pinot noir. Almost too silky and smooth, but difficult to ignore the beautiful black berry, spice, and apple pie notes. Very good at $13!

Added Apr 15, 2014 at 11:54pmNot the most approachable of pinots I've had, but this cherry- and starwberry- forward pinot will win you over.
