 Tasted by Racer117 on 12/16/2013 & rated 86 points: Reminds me of low to moderately priced Burgundy. Light with some spice and classic grapey PN taste. Simple, juicy, and nice. (591 views)
 Tasted by MerlinAT19 on 8/12/2013 & rated 90 points: Once again the community drink window is wrong. Wonderful wine that is full bodied and at a perfect age with a few years still left in it. (640 views)
 Tasted by jaumealaska on 7/6/2013 & rated 82 points: not flawed but not very interesting. (619 views)
 Tasted by Dngrzn12 on 3/23/2013 & rated 78 points: Past it's prime.... (689 views)
 Tasted by Winiac on 5/23/2012 & rated 89 points: Somewhat darker than average color. good balance and flavor. Somewhat unripe fruit because of the vintage but overall good wine. (965 views)
 Tasted by bdgale on 1/6/2011 & rated 88 points: Easy to drink, very grape juice-esque. (1034 views)
 Tasted by Decant Touch This on 12/1/2009 & rated 84 points: Very thin without much complexity. Almost water like. It was good though, I just wouldn't pay $30 a bottle again. (1420 views)
 Tasted by tucsonwino on 9/25/2009 & rated 85 points: Very drinkable, well balanced, a bit thin on the finish. (1409 views)
 Tasted by dkremer on 9/4/2009 & rated 89 points: The NYT is right. This is a fresh, fruity, balanced wine. (1397 views)
 Tasted by Nutty08 on 8/15/2009 & rated 87 points: Boerne Wine Club - Pinot Noir (Maggiano's a The Rim, San Antonio TX): Upon opening the I thought this was quite acidic and was actually flawed with volatile acidity. But 30-40min after opening that initial tartness resolved an and this turned into a nice Oregon pinot. Pleasant floral nose with a slightly thin but ripe palate and a short to medium finish of mostly mineral. A crisp Oregon pinot in a tough year, seems to be a little diluted, but would probably be a solid food wine. No votes from the group. (1558 views)
 Tasted by smphelps on 8/3/2009 & rated 85 points: Pretty good, seemed a little thin but well balanced (STP) (1411 views)
 Tasted by Combo on 3/7/2009 & rated 88 points: Seamed a bit tight to me. Probably should have decanted it. (1480 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.
