Hunterdon Pinot Noir 2005 Wine Review (NW)


Tasting notes:

Nose shows ripe plum and warm spices
Cherry on the palate
Finishes with an earthy touch that compliments the tapering fruit layers

For a $15 wine, this is nicely made. There's rich fruit, spices, and an earthy undertone. It paired extremely well with my crispy duck and dates. I recommend it at this price range because Pinot Noir is very hit-or-miss under $20.

The Santa Lucia Highlands area of California is producing some nice wines and we'll be seeing that designation on the front of labels more and more. Raise a glass!
