2005 French Rabbit Vin de Pays d’OC Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., $10, boxed. Imported by Boisset America Sausalito, CA. · This wine will be disappointing to regular Pinot Noir drinkers. First off, it is strange to remove a plastic seal and pour the wine out of an aluminum clad box. Strong aromas of prunes and raisins carry over to the flavors. I suspect it tasted less oxidized when first released and fresh. The texture is silky and the medicinal finish is clean. It is definitely a wine but most definitely a poor imitation of Pinot Noir.
