Castle Rock Pinot Noir Mendocino County 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

For sale by case. Our Castle Rock Pinot Noir was produced from grapes grown in Northern Californias beautiful Mendocino County, where vineyards were first planted in the early 1860s. Here, the headwaters of the Russian River carve a fertile and rugged landscape. The warm summers, cool springs, crisp falls and wet winters make ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noir grapes, in a climate similar to that of the Burgundy region of France, where the grapes were first established. This elegant and medium-bodied wine has delicate aromas of violet and rose petals, complex flavors and long silky textures, with layers of strawberry and raspberry leading into a long refined finish.

Bright garnet, aromas of dried red fruits and tobacco, flavor notes of bright, candied red plums and cola, with good balance and length. A bargain.

    Very smooth, easy to drink pinot with very nuanced red and black fruit.

    I'm surprised to see positive reviews. I found this to be flabby and dull-- almost "cooked." A commercial comment above mentioned acidity-- I didn't detect any! I don't think of Mendocino as a pinot noir sort of region, and this sweetish, monotonous product is pretty much what I would have imagined coming from that county-- alas. I think I paid around $10 for it at Costco, so not a huge loss as I poured half of it down the drain, but had I merely tasted it blind, I would have thought it a $4.99 special from Trader Joe's.

    Oak, some tart cherry, and a bit of acid. As it opens more, notes of cola and earth began to come through and the acid really zings � almost suggesting a touch of effervescence. Some raspberry on the finish.
