i haven't tasted it, but i'd say at 10 bucks, grab it.... carneros produces some good pinot fruit... and if it's made by acacia, it should be a solid wine....

Will try to grab one tomorrow morn and give it a shot.  Thanks for the link, pinotdiva!

Personally, I like RRV and Sonoma pinots....

Hey, I drank it last night and recommended it to two friends this morning.  It's good.  Not $40 good, but better than $10 good.  Buy a couple.  They also have an Acacia red blend that seems to be suggesting it is mostly pinot.  Anyway, this stuff probably IS Acacia Pinot or darn close--sourced from the same area, to be sure.  Not noticeably below their first line.  I mentioned this in my post in the thread about close-outs.  As CellarTracker pointed out, it has a cork that says Acacia.  But it's better than the snob on CT who gave it 80 says.

If you like Sonoma Pinots, call Scherrer wine and buy some of the '06 Sonoma County at $35.  It's quite good.

I've tasted it; only worth the $10 at world Market.  Greg Norman's Pinot Noir for a few $ more a superior wine.
