Barefoot Pinot Noir 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit dirty on the nose with an autumnal quality, very damp tea leaves and slightly oxidized chocolate tone. This is better in the mouth: light and fresh, and actually fairly nice, if subtle, Pinot. Very simple but with a touch of tannin, good acidity, a nice edge of complexity from the lightly oxidized fruit adding a hint of complexity, with a very light bitter edge to the simple red currant fruit. The tannins turn a bit firmer on the modest finish but this is perfectly serviceable wine. 83pts

We got our start as a "garage wine" back in the Sixties but really stepped up what Barefoot was about in 1986 when Michael Houlihan and partner Bonnie Harvey decided to relaunch the brand. The two of them, along with the first Barefooter, Randy Arnold, believed in making and selling wine that was both delicious and affordable and that could be enjoyed by everyone from first-time wine-consumers to hard-core aficionados. We believe that we can both promote our brand and satisfy our desire to make the world a better place by partnering with various non-profits and pouring at various fund-raising events. Over the years, Barefoot has been a part of thousands of non-profit events and our popularity has grown along with our support of these ground-breaking organizations. We took another big step in 2006 by becoming a sponsor of the Association of Volleyball Professions (AVP) Beach Volleyball supporting a grassroots sport that originated in our state-California. We’ve also teamed up with the grass roots non-profit, the Surfrider Foundation, to create the Barefoot Beach Rescue Project, designed to clean up beaches and ensure they are "Barefoot friendly." These two initiatives help us spread a sense of fun in the sun while furthering the Barefoot philosophy of giving back. Over the years, our wines have garnered numerous accolades and professional awards, but more importantly to us, we have a growing circle of loyal fans who love to enjoy our wine and who have joined us in the spirit of giving back to our communities and to our world. For us, and we hope for all of you, that’s an achievement well worth toasting with a glass of Barefoot wine. Read less

In 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?

    Seriously, at this price there can not be any complaints over this wine. I have had wines a lot worse than this that were four or five times the price. For a mid week pizza wine, with your feet up watching the game or Mad Men this is perfect. I was really afraid that it was going to be sweet or sugary but this was a pleasant surprise. Nice dark fruit and decent on the mid palate. Don't be expecting any great after taste, but at this price it gets an extra half mark.

    Somewhat harsh on the nose and finish. Strong Cherry and spice with barely perceptible vanilla. Good for the price but not life changing.

    Barefoot Pinot Noir is a medium bodied wine with tantalizing flavors of ripe cherry and wild raspberry. Hints of Vanilla and spice complement a smooth lingering finish.

    A clean, simple red with cherry cola flavors, this is build for burgers.

    This newest varietal has a silky blend of dark cherry and hints of raspberry complement the aromas of brown spices making it a favorite choice for any occasion. - Winery

    A bubble-gummy, raspberry granola-flavored wine thatandrsquo;s soft and silky and dry. Itandrsquo;s a good example of Pinot Noir at its most basic level.
