I admit to buying this wine (actually the 2007) solely for the label - while visiting relatives in Tacoma WA who live and breathe Shakespeare, I came across this wine in a Farmers' Market (Tacoma Boys) while looking for an inexpensive Pinot Noir for our "movie night". One of them writes for a living, so the name fit the situation as well. The wine has too harsh a flavor for my idea of a Pinot Noir, but it is not unpleasant. If it had cost less (I paid 12.99USD in the market) it would have been worth the price. I see it as a 9.99-10.99USD range - an inexpensive table wine. If you are buying it, as I did, for the label and the name, it is worth the 14.99USD price on Snooth. It won't keep in your cellar, but the bottle will keep conversations going for years.

From renowned California winemaker Jed Steele (of Kendall-Jackson fame) comes this bold spicy Pinot Noir. Lots of currant black cherry brown sugar and pepper. Definitely bigger than many Pinots we’ve tried this is a terrific wine for Malbec or Zin drinkers looking for something a bit different. Serve it with heartier chicken dishes pasta with meat sauce or sausages.

There is no loss of words for this generous Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara. The dark brick hue of this wine prophesizes deep flavors that are sure to satiate the most fanatical of pinot pundits. Aromas of candied bing cherries, brown sugar and spice suggests that this wine is all Pinot Noir, but on the pallet the 2008 Writer's Block Pinot Noir has more body and texture than typical Pinots. This wine offers up juicy cherry and raspberry flavors with hints of cinnamon and tobacco. The mouth feel is round and supple, and finishes with soft tannins.

Wine Tasting NotesA medium bodied Pinot Noir, with good complexity of aromatics and a supple mouth-feel, while bright acidity finishes dry. Red cherry fruit is very youthful and bright, complex aromatics including linger into a kind of perfume like weight and expanse with time. Consistent depth of fruit through mouth-feel to dry finish with acidic cleanse, when retro nasal aromatics mix and pleasurably close a complete circle from initial aromatic departure.
