Sean Minor Pinot Noir Napa Valley-Carneros 2008 sponsored wine review by (PB)
This wine was sent to us for review by the good folks at Sean Minor wines.
Nice ruby hue with classic Pinot aromas that are ample and bright, with fresh red berry aromas with hints of floral sweetness and a touch of subtle cocoa underneath it all.
Palate: This is yet another Sean minor success in masterful wine creation. If you have ever wondered what silky tannins are like, this is a great example. It is made in the relaxed style with lovely pomegranate, strawberry, and raspberry tartness. The finish is slightly smokey and just continues on and on.
This wine will run you Around $17 and is well worth it. It is a fine example of Pinot Noir although much less expensive than many. Raise a glass of this delicious artful wine!
