Tisdale Vineyards Pinot Noir 2007
Save your money. If you really want to buy a Tisdale Red, please go with the Shiraz as it has some sort of flavor. I had a small sip after i popped the bottle & swirled about 2 oz. to aerate. Tasted horrid. I decanted the rest of the bottle and waited awhile to see if some sort of flavor developed. In a blind taste test i might have thought this was a Merlot. After aeration the wine was a lttle more tolerable, but still bland. What can I expect from a $3 bottle? If I'm that hard up again, I'll just buy a 40oz of beer.
This wine ranks right up there with Ripple or Boon's Farm. Very disappointing.
nose of red fruit...light color....very light wine...nice balance of acidity and tannins incorpating to a short finish...sweet, fruity aftertaste
I think this is a GOOD bottle of wine and was thrilled when I realized the price. It is a little more fresh fruit flavored then most, but I enjoyed the more sweet/light flavor instead of the sometimes dry Pinot Noir. I keep about 75 bottles of $10-$50 wine in my case....I went out and purchased two cases of this wine! Good, solid wine with every-day dinners. Super price!
For the price you cant beat it. It taste like a 10-15 bottle of wine.
Really disappointed!! and on top of that, it gave me a really bad hangover headache!! It really is not worth it. I have only on one other occasion experienced such awful wine, the other time was an Alexa Red from another winery. That experience taught me to make a list which I carry in my pocketbook, that tells me which wines not to buy. It was the first wine to go on this list, and the Tisdale Pinot Noir the second. You are so much better off to go to Walmart and buy their 2.99 brand. It costs much less and is soooo much better. There just is no comparison. Why waste your money?
