A ruby red with just a little nose but this may have been because it was chilled. At first, it was a little tight and edgy but once it had 20 minutes in the glass, it opened up. Exhibited cherry and strawberry fruit but not a great deal. It is soft and food friendly and overall a good everyday wine.

Clean, cherry-berry fruit, slightly tart acidity that allows this to pair well with food. Certainly varietal in character. Not complex, but surprising depth of flavors. Considering that this wine cost me under $6 at Vons, it was a startlingly good pinot noir. I can't remember the last time I spent so little for a pinot noir that I actually enjoyed drinking. I've certainly had worse pinots that cost 2-3 times as much. Easily comparable with a typical well made Cote de Beaune villages wine, or maybe a Marsannay

I happened to taste this right after a Pinot that cost five times as much, and this one wasn't shamed. In fact, it stood up quite well. No, it didn't have the concentration, but the purity of fruit, crisp acids and silky texture make for a lovely Pinot Noir.

Round, with strawberry and raspberry notes underscored by toasty oak and ripe tannins. Drink now through 2003.

Medium-bodied, with spicy cinnamon, berry and cedar notes that pick up a touch of fresh earth and blueberry on the finish. Drink now.

Red-fruited with gentle pinot noir sweetness, this is built for lasagna layered with mozzarella and pork ragu.

Affordable and good Pinot Noir is hard to find. Look no further! This is an elegant wine with flavors of ripe berries and a hint of oak. This is a real crowd pleaser!

From a winery that doesn't ever seem to do anything wrong comes this fine, almost complex wine. It would probably be fantastic from a better vintage. As it is, it's good, with some density to it, and spicy, aromatic fruit that satisfies despite thinness in the middle palate. Considering how hard it is to find good Pinot at this price, you have to consider it a great value.

Their Pinot Noir is smooth and silky, with flavors of cherry, strawberry and fig.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Is there a wine more seductive than Pinot Noir? It arouses the senses like almost no other. A study in contrasts, this wine is at once demure yet charismatic. The Central Coast Pinot Noir exudes the classic hallmarks of Pinot Noir: beguiling aromas of cherry candy with hints of strawberry, roses and violets. It displays a subtle nuance of black tea and earth with a dash of vanilla oak spice. The flavor profile is elegant and medium-bodied with a velvety texture. Its complex flavors are juicy and mouth-filling, mirroring the aromas, including cherry, fig fruit and cola. It caresses the palate with slightly firm tannins and a long finish.
