Morande 'Pionero' Pinot Noir 2009

Member Review by sheepdog:

For the under $8 price tag, I was pleased with the Pinot Noir character and flavors. The nose is distinctly Pinot Noir and true to the grape type continuing on though to the finish. The 14.5% alcohol results in some heat and bitterness in the finish. Although the label indicated 8 months of oak in oak, there is no detectable trace of oak on the palate. Hey, for 8 bucks it may not be Burgundian but it is a bargain.

Formerly not a big Pinot Noir fan, this bottle excites me! A lushes ruby color. On the nose berries, strawberries, and sulfur. It had a thin feeling in the mouth, but the flavors deliver. Blueberries and strawberries. A robust acidity with soft tannins, quite elegant.

This Pinot Noir is an excellent wine for the price. The pale pink color makes you think it is going to be all fruit, but it has a good nose and exceptional balance for a wine in this price range. I loved it and will stock up, but might not break it out for special occasions.
