Are you a Pinot Noir fan that just can’t get enough, but just doesn’t know what to buy? Here are a few that have rocked my world, and are sure to rock yours.
1) St. Innocent Pinot Noir Temperance Hill Vyd, Willamette Vly 2010- “Deep red. Pungent, spice-accented aromas of cherry-cola, raspberry and potpourri, with a smoky overtone. Offers an array of deep, nicely focused red and dark berry preserve flavors. Spice and floral notes dominate on the very long, gently tannic, energetic finish. This wine’s intense fruit gives it great immediate appeal but it has the balance to age.” 92pts- Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar)
2) Siduri Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills 2010- “Supple in texture, this is a pleasure to drink, with a graceful mix of blackberry and wild berry fruit that’s both generous and structured. Drink now through 2018. 910 cases made.” 92pts- Wine Spectator
3) Morgan Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands 12 Clones 2010- “Well-crafted, tight and structured, with firm, gripping tannins keeping the zesty, tart wild berry, blackberry and date-nut bread flavors in check. Drink now through 2020.” 92pts- Wine Spectator
Hopefully this makes your next wine picking experience a bit easier. Enjoy!!
