Beaulieu Vineyards Pinot Noir 2007 wine review by (PB)
My wife grabbed this at Sam's Club for under $5. Turns out it is a Vin De Pay D'oc sourced from the Languedoc which is full of bargain wines. This venture by the West Coast masters at BV has cherry aromas in a purple hued base with savory spices to boot.
Palate-uncomplicated, thin texture with cherry and plum hints and later seems to bring up a light cocoa note all of which finishes pleasantly and lingers quite a bit. Now let's get serious--for under $5, this is a wine you can serve to your friends as an all purpose appetizer accompaniment or put a light chill on it as an aperitif. Raise a glass at any rate!
