Bouchaine Carneros Pinot Noir 2007 Sponsored Wine Review (NW)


This wine was sent complimentary to The Wine Cask Blog in exchange for a review.

Tasting notes:

Fragrant aromas of spicy plum and black cherry on the nose

Smooth and silky texture on the palate

More black cherry with smoky and spicy layers on the finish

Summary:

I like it! Here's a classic Pinot Noir that's well made and tastes great. It should prove to be a versatile wine with food, as well.

This winery produces Pinot Noir along with Chardonnay and several other varietals and has a deeply rooted philosophy in sustainable farming. Pinot Noir seems to be their flagship grape and they have multiple bottlings. This one runs about $30. (The 2006 label is pictured, but the 2007 looks the same.) Raise a glass!
