Pinnochio 2004 wine review by (PB)

This Sicilian which my wife picked out is made from the wonderful Nero D’Avola grape pours cherry red with a hint of purple. The bouquet is very light and the nose stingy at best. The palate is chewy and tight but it has promise. Breathe it!

With room to breath it has pronounced cherry flavors and dried cherry notes. Tannins are bold but is great with a sturdy main dish. We had charcoal grilled Porterhouse and it was very nice.

Not a lot of complexity here but solid rigid fruit that stands fast.

Raise a glass but tell the truth!
