Laetitia Arroyo Grande Valley Pinot Noir 2005 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Nose of plum, pomegranate, and roses

Herbal core on the palate, smooth texture

Long, fruity finish with loads of black pepper

I spent a week in Florida with my family visiting old friends and hosting guests at a beach house. While there, wine was a centerpiece of many casual dinners and evening conversations.

This wine was a real treat because it so nicely complimented the variety of appetizers set out. Our friends opened this bottle to share with us while we were visiting them in their home. We all enjoyed the smooth texture and the floral tones, and drank the bottle down very quickly. It was a fun evening, as we recalled the good times we all had together as we lived near each other in Jacksonville, Florida.

The reference price for this wine is approximately $25. It's a fair price for a well-made Pinot Noir. Raise a glass!

Superb. Just enough complexity to appreciate the beauty of life while watching the waves wash upon the shore.
