I'm putting this on the low end of the OK scale. Drinkable but don't if you have another choice. Picked up on sale in the grocery store for $11. Taste like I paid $11. Nose - Green and Tight. Think it's way too young. Can only get better, but probably not much... Taste - Some red fruit, cherry/raspberry --- Not overly fruity, but not overly anything really. Balanced to the finish. Fairly oaked. Silky with no bite. Summary - Lacks all character that a decent pinot should possess.
"Our Sterling Vintner's Collection Pinot Noir has silky cherry, plum, and rose character from grapes grown in cool Monterey County. Vibrant acidity balances the focused fruit flavors, and ten months of aging in French oak gave this wine charming vanilla nuances."
