2011 Montpellier California Pinot Noir

12.5% alc., pH 3.56, TA 0.55, $6. From Bronco Wine Company. 76% Pinot Noir, 17% Syrah, 4% Petite Sirah, 3% Dry red. · Moderately light reddish-purple hue in the glass. Aromas of confected cherries (Maraschino) with notes of forest floor and oak. Light, fruity, and simple, featuring flavors of cherries, raspberries and cranberries in an easy to drink style with some fine-grain tannins and a backing herbal oak sheen. Won’t light your fire, but low in alcohol and user friendly. Decent. Reviewed June 24, 2012
