Beringer "California Collection" Pinot Noir 2008 wine review by (PB)
Light cherry hue with genuine Pinot aromas of light cherry and raspberry and a gentle hint of spice.
Palate--Steely first impression with uncomplicated tastes of fruity cherries with a slightly bitter mid palate. Yes, it is pretty shallow, and yes it is uncomplicated and yes, it fades quickly but let's have a reality check here.
This wine is made from sourced grapes from California. It was a special one time purchase by Sam's Club and this bottle cost less than $6 so what the heck? I will buy a couple more, put a chill on it and serve it to friends who wouldn't know a Pinot Noir from a Pinot Grigio. For the price, it's pretty easy drinking so raise a glass!
