Editorial Reviews for Mirassou Vineyards Pinot Noir California
A bit buttery and lactic on the nose with attractive underlying red berry fruit that’s a touch tarry and framed with rather raw vanilla and oak aromas. This is smooth and a bit chewy if small scaled in the mouth with lots of sweet, candied raspberry fruit on the mid-palate that fades on the backend and leads to tart and somewhat candied and yet bitter finish. 80pts
Fruit forward with notes of red fruit. Soft tannins with a medium finish.
Raspberries, cherries on nose.....medium bodied slightly sweet
Enjoying this a lot right now after work. Looks great in the glass and a little heavy on the mouth for what I was expecting, but then it thins out. A lot of fruit up front but to me has a vanillia bit on the finish. After what I had before this taste like a Talley.
Nice. Fruity and full.
I recently had this as a glass pour in a restaurant. It was tasted by all - and enjoyed by all as well. I found it surprisingly sweet for a pinot, and quite jammy. No oak, little noticeable tannins. Very drinkable, but sweeter than I would have with a meal.
Enjoyed this more than any other Pinot so far. Very well balanced so it isn't too sweet or dry
light to medium
