Woodbridge Pinot Noir 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Stemmy and lightly smoky with cranberry and smoldering herbs on the nose. Bright yet a touch sweet on entry with simple yet clean red fruit flavors accented with the stemmy smoldering note of the nose. The finish is a touch sticky though the fruit gains a little more depth adding some nice plum and dried citrus peel/clementine notes. This is a bit clunky, the tannins a bit tough but it’s well made and defect-free. Totally unremarkable yet this offers good value. 84pts

Nose of cherry! Dark fruits of cherry, blackberry. Soft. Smooth on the pallet with light to little dryness.

This review is for Mondavi's Central Coast meritage, not the Pinot Noir. Snooth seems to dislike what titles I enter and change them. This middle weight wine shows harder tannins, moderate color but needs more extract to be a success. Pleasant but nothing to ponder. My rating-- 81

Some black cherry, pepper, a little earthy on the nose. A little light on the palate at first but opens up with a little time to breathe. Some notes of cherry come through on the palate again, but this is not a fruit forward wine. There's just enough fruit that you can taste it coming through. Mainly earthy with some pepper. To put it in layman's terms, overall I'm rather impressed with this wine especially considering that I only paid $8 for it at a local liquor store. I just might have to go back and get a few more of these. So far I've only paired it with some crackers with bacon and cheddar cheese spread. Wasn't a horrible matchup, but it didn't exactly make me go "wow" either. I think this would be much better with pizza. Perhaps I'll give that a try next time. Can't give it a 5 glass rating though as it is certainly not the best malbec I've ever had. Not really a 4 glass rating either. If I could go 3.9 I would, but as it is it gets 3.5. Pretty good effort by the winemaker.

I was suprised. I tried the Robert Mondavi reserve Pinot Noir 2009 and commented I would not repeat. I liked this wine, The touch of smoke adds to the enjoyment and the price makes it a good buy.
