The Redtree label offers several varietals for early consumption at affordable prices. The Redtree Pinot Noir, priced at $8 for the 2008 vintage, is a very good wine for the money.

2011 Backhouse California Pinot Noir
12.5% alc., $5.99. Occasionally I need to dip into the bargain bin to see what is offered in this price range. Produced by Cecchetti Wine Co. in St. Helena. · Light reddish-purple color in the glass. Aromas of strawberries, cherries, oak and a pharmaceutical note. Light and simple with decent red cherry and strawberry fruit flavors and very supple tannins. Lacks fire power but won’t disappoint at this meager price point if you just want some quaffable Pinot. One of the better Pinots I have tasted at this price. Decent. Reviewed June 23, 2013 ARTICLE »
