Beringer Founders Pinot Noir 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Sixty percent North Coast fruit for the muscle and body of the wine, which imparted the rich flavors and aromas of ripe black fruit and bing cherry. The blend of Central Coast fruit for the remainder of the wine added agile suppleness, with exotic hints of cardamom, orange pekoe tea, and rose hips. The result is a wine with good structure and flavor that is a delicious accompaniment to almost anything - whether it's with friends or food (or both!)

CHECK THE ORIGIN WARNING!! The Vin de Pays D'Oc wine from Beringer Founders is NOT NOT NOT.... Not the same as the two OTHER Beringer Founders bottlings of Pinot Noir from 2007... confused? I was! Looks like Beringer Founders offers THREE different origin Pinot Noirs for 2007! California, Provincia de Pavia (Italy) and Vin de Pays d'Oc (Frogland) Having seen good ratings for Beringer Founders Pinot, I thought this would be the same. Bought a bottle. HATED it. Barely drinkable PLONK. READ THE LABEL CAREFULLY! If it is from Vin read more...de Pays D' Oc, STAY CLEAR!! or waste your money Check the label. It is written in LITTLE print at the bottom.... thanks Beringer!

I did not care for this, carried a malted kind of taste.

Drinkable, but this wine did not do much for me.

When I read the label carefully, I figured that it is a French Vin de Pays D'Oc that is imported and than bottled by the California Beringer vineyards and sold under their name and with all the buhai about Napa Valley Pinot Noir. I am not surprised that a lot of people buy this with a misconceived expectation. The French wine sold in this manner, however, is quite agreeable to me. The 2007 that I tried was full, sophisticated and in my opinion perfectly fine for the less than $10 I paid for the bottle.

While it's a light wine, this pretty Pinot has plenty of varietal appeal. It's silky and crisp, with pleasant cherry and raspberry flavors finished with vanilla and smoke. A good value in Pinot Noir.

You know how a Beaujolais Nouveau hits you with a blast of young acid and freshly picked fruit? That's this Pinot Noir. It's a simple, savory, easy wine, with cherries, strawberries, pomegranates and rhubarbs that seem like they were picked five minutes ago.

Quite good for an inexpensive Pinot, especially one from a statewide appellation. Has pleasant berry-cherry, herb and tobacco flavors wrapped in soft, silky tannins, but enough acidity to cleanse the palate. Pinot 101.

Deep garnet color shows off the intense cherry fruit flavors, spicy highlights and moderate oak nuances of this lush and lovely wine.

Fresh and bright, with strawberry aromas, a zippy acidity and almost no oak; pour this refreshing pinot with your turkey sandwich with cranberry relish.
