Three Knights Pinot Noir (Los Carneros) 2009 review by (PB)
Another Trader Joe's wine, this Pinot is light in color with some surprisingly big Pinot aromas. Strawberry fruit with a touch of "stink" and a breeze of milk chocolate powder.
Palate--Again--surprisingly varietal flavors of strawberry and lingering fruit on a foundation that has some character and a smoky finish.
Fred Franzia (think--Franzia wines)made the statement once that "No wine is worth more than $10." He now heads up the gigantic Bronco Wines Co. and backs his philosophy of non-pretension with this quality value Pinot for $7. Carneros Pinots will easily run you $23 on up. This is a great value so raise a glass!
