Excellent 'everyday' wine, we enjoy a bottle at least 3 times a week, buy 2 cases every 2 months. Very smooth, fruitful, light yet full bodied; nice easy finish. Definitely our favorite; excellent with lamb, Italian, salmon, even good with steak it you want something not as heavy as a Cab. Try it; you'll like it!
I am drinking this Pinot while writing this note. It has a rather bland taste - not full-bodied at all in my opinion. However, it is relatively smooth for a $8 wine. But, it tastes almost like it's watered down. Very liquidy - not thick. It doesen't have a good nose either. It's not a really bad wine; I've had worse wines at higher prices. I'm on the fence about buying it again- the price is really cheap - it definitely tastes better than it's price. But I'd rather spend $15 more for a better Pinot, like a Twelve Clones Santa Lucia Highlands Morgan for example. Unfortunately, it isn't available here, but you can get it at BevMo.
Mirassou claims fruity, cherry, strawberry, plum? Thats a laugh. Think dirty gym socks. More accurate. It has bad after taste and a foul odor. Its not anything it claims. Its not smooth either. I coughed after first sip. I dumped bottle down the drain.
