Well, there are two ways for me to review this wine: (1) as a Zin, or (2) As a wine in general. For me, as a Zin, this just doesn't cut it. Very savory, with bacon and smoked/cured meats tastes and the like. But maybe if someone is looking for something to mellow-out the usual Zin characteristics, this might work for them. But as a wine in general, for the price, this was pretty good. So as a Zin, I'd give it about 2-2 1/2 glasses. as a wine in general, 3 1/2. So the middle ground is about a 3.

Consider 1 that I normally pay $11 a bottle for this wine, and most decent Zins start at $18... This is my everyday Zin. No it's not as flavorful or full as more expensive Zins, but for a $11/bottle Zin it's really good. I typically use this as an everyday kind of wine. It's not something I'd pull out for a special occasion nor would I take it to a party, but it's a good inexpensive everyday wine


Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2011 Pinot Noir is a well-balanced fruit forward blend with bold aromatics of cranberry, red raspberry and rose petal coupled with hints of toasty oak and warm baking spice. Subtle on the palate, pomegranate, wild strawberry and plum flavors come into play with subtle mocha and walnut nuances rounding out the finish. Much of our 2010 Pinot Noir’s character comes from blending the fruit of several notably cool California growing regions including Clarksburg, Mendocino, and the Sierra Foothills.
