Kendall-Jackson Pinot Noir 2003 Vintner’s Reserve (PB)

On the pour this has a typical Pinot color of lighter red with a translucent appearance yet the bouquet fills the room of fresh fruit of raspberries with a layer of currants. Beyond that there is a layer of black cherries and black berries; an impressive start!

In the mouth, the first impression is spice on a nice texture that is elegant in balance all the way around. The finish of this wine is also pleasant with a subtle touch of chocolate. I believe this was a Gaiter /Brecher favorite for inexpensive Pinot Noirs showing yet again that their recommendations are usually right on the money. At $12, this was certainly a winner and will be on the recommended list. Raise a glass again and again!
