Truchard Pinot Noir 2007, Carneros, CA - $29.99



I tasted this wine at Whole Foods the other day. It's a single-vineyard wine that is a blend of seven separate clonal selections of Pinot Noir from the Truchard Estate Vineyard. It retails at Whole Foods for $29.99/bottle.

Aroma - cherries, light
Taste - red cherries, black tea, little spice at end, soft tannins, a little sweet

Not my favorite Pinot Noir, but it's got some good complexity and it would be an okay choice. There are a few less expensive Pinots that I like better than this one.

Update - August 10, 2011
CC brought this wine to share on TV viewing night. He bought it at Royal Blue for $31.99/bottle.

Aroma - smoky fruit
Taste - cherries, light black tea, hint of dark cocoa, soft tannins, nice minerality

Different but nice.
