I am typically not a big fan of many California Pinot Noir wines because they are very heavily oaked and very high in alcohol content. But this is an exception! The oak, what little there is, is very well integrated. I taste sweet berry fruits with vanilla and baking spices, a very mellow wine in the glass. Totally gulpable!!

I am a Pinot Noir lover, plain and simple. My favorite Pinots are from the Willamette Valley in Oregon and some California Pinots. I have explored other Pinots from NZ, Australia, Chile, Italy (Pinot Nero) and some lower priced ones from France. This wine is horrible. It does not even compare to a similarly priced Pinot Noir from California (Castle Rock, Mark West or Coastal Vines) or Oregon (Pull Eighty or Terrapin). I do not like most Pinot Nero from Italy either. If you are a die hard Pinot fan -- just stick with the good ole' USA for good quality Pinot Noir. And if you wish to splurge on an Old World style, grab a bottle of 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape and cellar it for a year or ten. Trust me, 2008 Oregon Pinot Noir is your best bet on incredible wine at this time! Grab it while you can....

Yealands Pinot Noir 2008
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $14.99
I preferred this to the Innocent Bystander PN, which sells for $5 more/bottle. Not as much tingle in the mouth as some other NZ Pinots I've had.

I absolutely love Pinot Noir and Cote du Rhone. I like a big fruit, velvety smooth mouthfeel. I recently bought this bottle at wine.com and am getting ready to purchase more of it. It is a wonderful value with primarily Syrah (vs. Grenanche), which is my preference in a CDR. Stock up while you can!!

I served this wine at our family Christmas dinner this past year and it was a hit! Malbec is a great red for all palates, because it is smooth yet full-bodied. Looking forward to another bottle. This wine scored #32 on the Wine Spectator top 100 wines of 2009.
