Cellar No. 8 Pinot Noir California 2008
You really have to slowly drink this wine or it is very intense with a not so good strong finish. I usually like cellar no. 8 wines but this one I will pass on next time.Add winemaker's notes
Today, Cellar No. 8 wines honor this tradition of winemaking in a series of rich, complex wines from carefully chosen vineyard sites throughout California.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Starts out a little thin and simple, but opens up after it breathes to reveal some of the peppery notes found on the nose. Has some nice fresh fruit as well.
Light and a bit sweet. Great ruby color. Nice pepper finish. A lot of character for the price. A solid wine for an afternoon outing or as a dessert wine.
I enjoyed the fresh fruit in this wine. Strawberries and raspberries jump out of the glass. Silky smooth and easy to drink- this would be fantastic with salmon or any kind of fish as well as veal or pork. It is light and lovely. I would serve this to my friends anytime.
External Reviews for Cellar No. 8 Pinot Noir California
A stylish Pinot Noir with jammy and earthy notes and hints of spice on the nose. These fruit-driven flavors carry over onto the palate and are balanced by structured tannins. The palate offers juicy strawberry jam flavors with a dash of nutmeg spice. Lush and complex on the palate, this Pinot Noir has guts yet a silky finish. - Winery
