This review is of Irony Pinot Noir, Monterey County, 2005. I was looking for a wine under $15 to take to a wine and food pairing dinner. I wanted something to match with a pork roast in a cranberry sauce. I tried several PNs and ultimately decided on the Irony. It had lots of berry fruit and good acidity. It matched the dish very well and several participants asked where they could buy it. It is sometimes discounted to @ $12.

Very disappointing. Super tart, going toward a spoiled acidity. When I sipped this, I involuntarily made a face I usually reserve for wines that have gone bad. Just plain odd.

This Monterey Pinot Noir offers a balance of heady fruit notes and savory characteristics. Layers of sweet cherry, fresh raspberries, cola and earthy mushrooms make up the profile in this medium-bodie

Irony 2011 Monterey County Pinot Noir leads with red cherry, ripe strawberry and vanilla aromas, heightened by an earthy undercurrent of sage. Bright red cherry flavors are layered with strawberry jam and accents of rhubarb and red licorice. The lush, supple tannins found in this medium-bodied Pinot Noir are beautifully balanced with fresh, crisp acidity. Enjoy with hearty lamb stew, flatbread with prosciutto, pecorino and arugula or grilled salmon. - WineryTECHNICAL DATA* Appellation: Monterey, California* Winemaker: James Ewart* Barrel Aging: Three months in French and American oak* Residual Sugar: .15 g/100ml* Alcohol: 13.5% by volume* Final pH: 3.59

Irony Pinot Noir opens with aromas of red cherry, strawberry and undertones of clove and sage. Rhubarb flavors are layered with accents of red cherry, licorice and berry jam. Firm tannins and crisp acidity deliver a lovely balanced, medium-bodied wine with a smooth finish.
