Average. Wine Merchant in Cary, NC
I would give this 3.75 stars. I had the 2008 last night at a very nice restaurant. It was one of the cheaper offerings---$32 a bottle. It was delicious. I had it with a blue cheese & pear salad, grilled salmon with saffron buerre blanc. It had more body than most Pinot Noirs....with a fabulous lingering soft tannin silky finish. Imagine my surprise when I was able to order a case for $5.99 a bottle!
We were able to buy it at Trader Joe's for a very short time and found it comparable in bouquet and taste to many more expensive pinots!

External Reviews for Trinity Oaks Pinot Noir California
This wine has the word 'Trinity' in its name and in fact, there are three remarkable things about it. The first is that it tastes SO good. The second is that the fruit really does come from California and the third is the unbelievable price. We haven't tasted a value Pinot this good from California in long time. Because of limited availability, many California wineries were reduced to sourcing Pinot from Southern France, South America and Italy, but Trinity Oaks is all California. The Trinchero family, who makes it, own some of the most extensive vineyard holdings in California. They've brought top quality fruit from their Central Valley and the Central Coast vineyards, aged it in French and American oak and produced a delicious and very affordable Pinot, with ripe strawberry and black cherry nuances. Grab it. Trinity Oaks partners with Trees for the Future to restore tree cover and improve the environment in developing countries around the globe. They're committed to planting a tree for every bottle of wine they sell, so your purchase will aid in that effort.
