Hob Nob Pinot Noir 2008 Sponsored Wine Review (NW)

Disclosure: This wine was provided complimentary to The Wine Cask Blog.
Tasting notes:

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!
