This wine is not complex enough to excite ones imagination. It drinks smooth and will likely cause little problems if severed at a dinner party. That being said, if you enjoy A-1 sauce on you steak your in business with this wine. The price is right so dive in and get a case.

Starts at $8.95 for a bottle, yet I just paid $8 for a glass at the local Italian restaurant, Don Giovanni, who didn't even put it in a glass large enough of swirl. To add insult to injury, they had it on their list of wines by the glass under "Interesting Reds." It's so so. Very drinkable on it's own, but I don't find the best Pinots to be especially drinkable without a nice food pairing. It was light raspberry in color and had notes of bitter cherry and some spice. I'd put this in the category of a basic Red Table Wine.

While itrsquo;s a light wine, this pretty Pinot has plenty of varietal appeal. Itrsquo;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? Thatrsquo;s this Pinot Noir. Itrsquo;s a simple, savory, easy wine, with cherries, strawberries, pomegranates and rhubarbs that seem like they were picked five minutes ago.

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

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.

"Rich red and black cherry flavors of this Pinot Noir are layered with subtle undertones of black pepper

Flavors of black cherry and plum with hints of toasted nuts and spice.

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


Winemaker's Notes:

The Beringer Founders' Estate Pinot Noir is bright ruby in color and displays ripe currant flavors rounded out by aromas of cedar and spice. This wine has immediate fruit-forward flavors that balance well with the toasty smokiness of the oak. It would pair perfectly with a red wine risotto or grilled salmon.
