2012 Mirassou Pinot Noir
Young, bright and fruity and for $6.99 it’s not all that bad. Very one dimensional though from beginning to end. A very simple drink, that early stage Pinot fans may enjoy a bit more than others. There’s really nothing to not like. It’s just so basic.
The wine gives you little bursts of red fruit, almost reminding me of a cherry Laffy Taffy; tastes sweet and sugary on the finish, with maybe a little tobacco and smoke.
You’ll be hard pressed to find many CA Pinots that even exist in this price range, so I have to give them props for that. If you’re looking for a decent mid-week drinker, here you go. If you’re looking for much more, you will want to keep looking.
