Baus Family Vineyards Private Reserve Pinot Noir 2010, Sonoma County,CA - $14

    

RJ brought this wine to a dinner party last night. She purchased it at Twin Liquors during their $1 over cost sale in late August.

Aroma - red fruit, a little hot (14.1% alcohol)
Taste - red fruit and sweet tobacco, dry, good acid

Yummy, but a little high in alcohol.

Jezebel Pinot Noir 2011, Oregon - $15

    

I purchased this wine at Central Market for $15/bottle. The Wine Advocate rated it 88, and it only contains 12.5% alcohol - yay!

Aroma - tart cherries
Taste - tart cherries, high acid, black tea finish

Good, but I actually prefer the Firesteed Pinot that I had yesterday.

http://www.firesteed.com/media/1022/firesteed-oregon-pinot-noir.png

I purchased this wine at Central Market for $12/bottle. I originally purchased this because it is only 12% alcohol.

Aroma - cherries, stone
Taste - cherries, dry, nice minerality

I really like this wine! It's simple but not overly fruity!
