Brancott Pinot Noir 2009

Member Review by tabednar:

Very good pinot for the money. Transparent purple color with a light body, silky mouth feel. Hints of cherries on the nose with an equal taste of red berries. Nicely balanced acidity with a subtle but pleasant finish. Great if you want a red for seafood or chicken.

A savoury nose leads into savoury cherry fruit in the mouth, well balanced. There's a hint of freshness to lighten up that savouriness and the whole sensation is silky smooth. It ends with good length making this great value for the £7.59 I paid for it at Waitrose in the UK.

A plump, corpulent wine with just enough tannin to give it structure in the face of relatively low acidity. It's lush and chocolaty, adding hints of vanilla and dried spices. Drink now.

Cool climate Pinot Noir; perfumed, Burgundian nose followed by crisp, clean black cherry and plum fruits. Flavorful, yet light-bodied, with a zesty finish.

Sheer noir, this transparent black wine has a raspberry edge of flavor. That, along with the scent of violets, makes it easy to place with food, its acidity ready to cut through a salmon steak in a beefy wine reduction, or roasted marrow bones.

A delicate, small-scale pinot, this wine has good depth and brightness in both color and flavor. Its gentle, light cherry fruit will complement grilled chicken.

Smooth and polished, with pretty raspberry and floral character that lingers nicely on the superfine fnish. Drink now through 2005.

Starts with some caramelly, cola-like notes, then adds cherries and a hint of green. Develops sassafras-wintergreen-root beer flavors, all carried across the palate on a soft, fruity core.

Finding a great value Pinot Noir can be challenging. You've probably heard how difficult Pinot Noir is to cultivate, requiring some hands in the vineyard to do it well, which often translates to big bucks on the consumer's end. Inexpensive Pinot Noir, even when drinkable, often lacks varietal identity ("this has notes of... red wine"). The Brancott 2009 Pinot Noir, however, is both delicious and distinctly Pinot. The aromas of pomegranate, tart cherry, baking spice, and a subtle umami nuance have depth and persistence. Light and refreshing, not thin and washed-out, this delivers incredible flavor for the money.
