  • I picked this up on clearance for $20 as like AV pinot's, so i wasn't expecting too much. That being said I was still disappointed. This was big, ripe and unwieldy, and after a glass my palate was tired. The profile was dominated by a ripe core of dark berry fruit with a sweet oak influence, and lack of acidity which threw the whole profile out of balance. Its not quite Belle Glos but is getting there. The bottle reeked of over ripe fruit and spoofilated wine making.

  • I'm a fan of Anderson Valley vinos, so I thought I'd give the Couloir Pinot a try. After reading great reviews on the Prince of Pinot site, I picked up this 2010 from the Londer Vineyard. From the first sip, even with a few pinot-like hints of pine and some berry fruits, this is sappy and has no discernible body. To be fair, this pinot is made in the bigger-is-better, darker fruit style at about 14% ABV. Still, this one is a big PASS for me.
