Estancia Pinot Noir Monterey 2006

Member Review by ttutony:

A fine pinot noir with good red fruit character in the nose and palate. Balanced throughout and a nice medium body. I would score this on the low side of a 4 out of 5, but still a very enjoyable wine.

Very high cost performance Pinot. Ripe berries flaver and silky taste, very like this wine with this price.

Good color with an oak and cherry nose that is appealing if not particularly interesting. Attacks the palate weakly and possesses little body. Tastes of watered down fruit with an unfortunately long finish that has the tones of loose leaf notebook paper combined with notes of morning breath.

Wine Tasting NotesDeep ruby red. Elegant fruit complemented by soft notes of rose petals enhanced by red cherries and hints of oak. Ripe, bright fruit accented by silky tannins and minerals. Spicy sweet oak line the lengthy finish.

Wine Tasting NotesRed with purple edges. Effusively fruity, with ripe cherry and strawberry layered with sweet oak and aromas of dried flowers, leaf and spice. Rich berry flavors with hints of leather and briarnotes. Silky mouthfeel with soft, round tannins and a long finish.
