Community Tasting Notes (average 1 note) - and median of 89 pts. in hiding notes with no text
| ||Tasted by Jester on 3/22/2007 & rated 89 points: Once Upon a Vine XIII - New Orleans, LA by Martin Wine Cellar (Pavillion of Two Sisters): For the price, I was somewhat fond of thie Pinot. Somewhat reticent nose, but giving up a little bit of raspberry, sage, and tapenade. Silky medium body with good acidity. Flavors of red fruits, hints of cedar, cranberry, cherry cola, brown sugar, and basil. Decent complexity and enough structure to last for a few years. The tannins are plump and integrated already. This was pretty decent. (2407 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.

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.
