Garnet Monterey County Pinot Noir 2010 Wine Review (NW)
Fragrant strawberry and rose petal on the nose
Medium bodied on the palate
Raspberry jam, with some fresh earth notes and vanilla on the finish
Maybe I shouldn't have been surprised, but I found myself pleasantly surprised that this wine is quite nice. It's fragrant and shows some other interesting characteristics that keep it real and not overly manufactured.
The price is around $15, and it should pair well with lighter dishes and poultry. I recommend you grab this as a nice value-priced Pinot Noir if you happen to see it. Raise a glass!
