2013 Cotillion California Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., $10. A featured wine at Trader Joe’s markets. 60% Monterey County, 24% Sonoma County and 16% Santa Barbara County. Vinted and bottled by Ashford Court in Napa. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, smoky oak and bacon are replicated on the palate. A umami-driven wine with a soft and smooth texture and some finishing intensity. Not a special wine by any stretch, but drinkable at a wallet sparing price. Score: 84. Reviewed April 20, 2015
