| ||Tasted by ashikoh on 5/27/2014: rich Cali pinot with sour cherry, raspberry, and smooth tannins (754 views)|
| ||Tasted by brigcampbell on 12/29/2013: Two obvious observations. This is a very good wine at a reasonable price and it's spicy!|
Good clarity and sparkling garnet look. Maple syrup nose makes me wonder... Palate is soft tannins and dark fruit with a Big Bang of cayenne pepper. I thought the maple syrup nose would follow into the palate but thankfully that was not the case. Really spicy, to the point of being a bite at the end, and perfectly aligned with the Cajun style meal. (1016 views)
| ||Tasted by Ltomanek on 3/26/2013 & rated 92 points: I picked this up in a grocery store in Carmel after talking to the guy who selects their wines (7th Street) for $25. A gem of Pinot. Great balance and nice fruit. The raspberry is there and so is some cherry. The tannins are nice. It is just short of a Kosta Browne or a Dehlinger Pinot Noir, but when you take the price into account, this Pinot beats them. (1591 views)|

Miura Producer article
Pinot Noir Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

California California Wines (Wine Institute of California)
California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.
