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.
Nice and smooth. Easy to drink - especially at $10 per from Costco.
My current favorite
Economical. Silky. Fairly complex.
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.
External Reviews for Estancia Pinot Noir Monterey
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.
