Hob Nob Pinot Noir 2008 Sponsored Wine Review (NW)
Mixed berries, violets, and vanilla on the nose
Medium bodied and nicely textured on the palate
Grapey finish with oak accents
With grapes sourced from France, this wine is a newer entrant into the affordable varietal lineup. It carries as suggested price of $10.99.
The problem with Pinot Noir at this price, as I've discovered, is that it often fails to deliver enough real varietal character. For example, this wine is fun and easy to drink but it lacks any real reference to Pinot Noir. Raise a glass to easy drinking!
