 Tasted by ctjared on 4/1/2011: Cant remember all the details except that it was drinking very nicely, fruity, balanced and had some life left. (662 views)
 Tasted by wineismylife on 5/14/2004 & rated 92 points: WIML92
Tasted at an offline so quick notes only. This is good Pinot Noir. Nose and palate of plums, black cherries, black berries and any other dark fruit you might be able to think of. Toss that and a hint of spice over a silky smooth frame and you have yourself a really nice Pinot Noir. Drink over the short term. (1392 views)

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.
