2012 Noble Vines 667 Monterey Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $9.99. · Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. Classy aromas of dark cherries and dark red berries lead to a mid weight palate of flavors that echo the nose. Nicely balanced and very forward, with complimentary hints of spice and oak. A gentle wine that aims to please. Score: 86. Reviewed December 19, 2013
