This was a suprise - a guest loved the label and purchased the wine - it was a great pinot noir for the money for certain. Not complex but real good.
This was nice, unassuming, non-complex wine. Soft, easy drinking that would go with all kinds of food. Will buy again.
One of the best 9 dollar bottles of wine I've ever tasted. Overripe dark cherry burst upon opening bottle. velvety mouth feel with hints of banana tips , coffee and nestle chocolate mid to end palate and and an earthy almost garlicky undertone on the finish. Nummy Nummy.
As far as inexpensive wines go, this one's pretty good. Considering how easy it is to make a bad Pinot, that's even more impressive. A slight fruitful, pinot-y flavor, but it's merely a tease. Definitely a great everyday wine.
Reliable everyday wine.
It was the worst Pinot I have ever had. Watered down, simple, and lacked any complexity. For a re-bottled French import I would expect better.

External Reviews for Rex Goliath Pinot Noir Central Coast
Surprisingly tasty for the price class. Well-balanced, with mixed berry fruit, preserves, tea and spice, giving the wine character.
Weird name, simple wine, but not a bad one. It's awfully hard to get distinction in Pinot Noir at this price. The wine is dry, and there are some berry flavors wrapped in silky tannins.
Surprisingly tasty for the price. Well-balanced, with mixed berry fruit, preserves, tea and spice flavors that provide the wine with character and grace.
This deliciously gulpable PG shows why the varietal is so popular in America. Beautifully dry and crisp, full flavored in lemon, lime, peach and pepper notes, and clean through the finish, and you can't beat that everyday price.

With an intense American/French oak regime-and careful maturation -this wine truly expresses Pinot Noir varietal character. A deep red color and pleasant aromas are offset by a dry, harmonic blend of black cherry and a touch of vanilla, which stays on the tongue-producing a pleasant finish. With true varietal flavors and an easy-drinking and fruit-forward profile, it reaches a fine balance between soft and subtle, and complex and BOLD. It's the perfect wine for everyday drinking and can be paired with a wide variety of food: beef, veal, pork, lamb, chicken, and even fish. I imagine that you'd be hard-pressed to find a food pairing that doesn't work with this wine. - Winery
