Buena Vista Pinot Noir 2003 Caneros Reserve wine review (PB)

I picked this wine up on a lark on my way back from Boston. It cost me $15. It is a pretty Pinot red with a delightful strawberry and chocolate bouquet–I’m talking loads of chocolate and even more in the nose.

In the mouth it sits well on opening with light fruity notes, very nice structure yet more tannic than I would have expected giving it an unexpected vibrancy.

With 15 minutes of air, this wine is gently sweet and fruity which opens to more fruit galore with more fudgey chocolate notes. Positively delicious and eliciting a “Wow!” from me. What a nice surprise and a nice value. Raise a glass of this recommended find.
