Pinot Evil Pinot Noir 2005 wine review by (PB)
After receiving numerous inquiries about this wine Billy and I decided to grab a bottle and review it. Tis wine was so forgettable I had forgotten I reviewed a 2004 back in April. That one was French while this wine is sourced from Romania! I found it for $9 at a local shop in Minnesota. Even with the attempt at a clever label the wine fails on all counts.
It is a bright burgundy color with a bouquet that smells like a cheap cab/merlot rather than Pinot Noir. It has tart raspberry nose with steely foundation. In the mouth it is rather plonky, short lived with pepper in the back.
For the price you can do much better (think Mark West, Camelot). This is a wine to avoid and please, whatever you do, don't try this wine and think, "Gee, I don't like Pinot Noir." There is nothing Pinot noirish about it. Raise a glass of something else!
