Community Tasting Notes (average 77.7 pts. and median of 82 pts. in 15 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by WinePT on 8/10/2010 & rated 77 points: Horrible cheap Burgundy that was a little better on day 2. (1903 views)
 Tasted by cliffo41 on 2/1/2010 & rated 68 points: Of the people that review no one likes it, and nearly everyone rates in the high 80s. I don't get it. Frankly, a 68 is probably generous. Thin, weak wine. No nose - seriously, it could be water in the glass. Extremely dry, somewhat sour finish. No complexity, nothing interesting. The Mrs. says "not my kind of wine." (1932 views)
 Tasted by AustinJC on 7/15/2009: I have to agree with everyone else. Little to no nose to speak of. A little red fruit and spice. The palate is of tart cherries and maybe a hint of fig, which is what I've come to expect from low end Pinot Noir. This wine is definitely not worth the $15 tag. There are amazing wines to be had at that price point and this fell very short. (2364 views)
 Tasted by WetRock on 7/15/2009: Plastic cork. Barely any nose to speak of even after a couple days open. Straight, linear red wine that is richer than I expected. Couldn't identify it as Pinot but couldn't say it wasn't either. Shows some balancing acids but not strongly. It's just red wine. Is it a value for $3? Hard to say. I'm not buying anymore since there was nothing to make me want more. But there is certainly nothing flawed about this wine or that stands out as being a big negative either. (2138 views)
 Tasted by jeffal66 on 7/1/2009 & rated 82 points: No notes. Very light, non offensive. Bought for $6 (I think) in PA. (2261 views)
 Tasted by wineaboutit on 5/12/2009 & rated 80 points: Hoping for something cool from a great '05 vintage. Drinkable, simply another mediocre pinot noir, join the club... (1608 views)
 Tasted by chmd on 5/8/2009 & rated 83 points: I expected this $10 Pinot Noir to be swill, but was pleasantly surprised. Still, the problem with PN is that it's either great or mediocre. Even in that price range, there are tons of wines that are delicious and more fun to drink. (1683 views)
 Tasted by Rmcgeary on 4/9/2009 & rated 87 points: So so at best. Probably better second night with airation (1778 views)
 Tasted by EaglesWin on 4/4/2009 & rated 85 points: Pass. (1904 views)
 Tasted by The Drunken Cyclist on 2/4/2009 & rated 82 points: Drank over two nights. First night, not great. Thin, not very interesting. I would give more of a tasting note, but there was not much taste. The second day, there was a chill left from the over-night in the fridge. Today, it resembled an average Beaujolais, which is a good thing (at least better than yesterday). (1675 views)
 Tasted by creining on 6/19/2008 & rated 80 points: Opened up after airing, not very complex, good spice and berry on the nose, slightly acidic on the finish. (1740 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 3/21/2008 & rated 50 points: thin; sharp; some varietal nose; not worth $8 (1789 views)
 Tasted by acchrist0 on 7/20/2007 & rated 82 points: Not a huge fan of this wine, but I have to admit its the secod time I've thrown a bottle into a mixed case. Overall, a little watery and not much of a finish, but its drinkable and has a nice berry/acid balance. As long as you don't set your expectations too high you can't be too disappointed with a $13 wine. (2266 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.

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
