Mont-Pellier Pinot Noir 2007 wine review by (PB)

This California sourced Pinot is a purple cranberry hue with some depth. Strawberries and Pinot nose with sweet spicy raspberry hints.

Palate--fresh, fruity strawberry/raspberry palate with a delicate tartness that lends some life, finishing with some fruit.

Okay, here's the surprise--this is a very drinkable Pinot with some down right Pinot character and yet this wine cost a ridiculous $6. That's what I call a "value" wine! Raise a glass.

We had never heard of this winery but just had the 2005 Pinot and it was one of the best surprises for the $$ ever. Medium bodied, delicious but with enough structure to complement a special meal. The alcohol was around 12.5% which my wife really appreciated. This is a wine I'll purchase again for everyday enjoyment.
