Muirwood Pinot Noir 2008

Member Review by connie7899:

Over oaked, but well balanced otherwise. Lush fruit. The oak is the first thing I got. Sitting in the fridge, this held up well and the oak diminished.

Light in body and velvety-smooth, this Pinot Noir has exceptional bang for the buck when it comes to quality. Oak aging highlights the ripe berry flavors and provides a nice structural backbone. The tannins are soft and silky and the finish is lengthy, with herbal hints.

a.k.a. the Velveteen Pinot, this onersquo;s so smooth it pours itself. Ripe and slightly exotic cherry and spice notes taste like Californiarsquo;s finest efforts.

Selected from six distinct lots from Muirwoodrsquo;s Sutter Ranch, this Pinot Noir offers generous berry and cherry flavors. Soft tannins and a silky body lead to a smooth, supple finish.

We found charming notes of spice, raspberry and light blueberry in this Pinot Noir. Finishes with bright acidity and soft tannin.

Excellent quality Pinot at a competitive price. Medium- to light-bodied, with ripe cherry and strawberry notes, silky tannins and great acidity. Boasts an extremely expressive nose and amazing balance, with a surprisingly lengthy finish.

Easy, lush and filled with spicy red and black fruits. Lightly toasted blackberry and plum are supported by soft tannin and a cedary finish. A great introduction to Pinot Noir, this affordable red will pair well with beef or hearty poultry dishes

This Pinot Noir is so user friendly and kind to the palate that you may be tempted to buy it by the case. Flavors of bright cherry, sweet, ripe, plum and pretty floral hints of lilac will keep you sipping. The tannins are powdered and soft in this medium bodied steal. It will surely be a hit accompanying anything from aged black angus burgers to grilled pork tenderloin.
