Wine of the Week - Bella Cavalli 2009 Pinot Noir


(The grapes in this bottle come from Santa Barbara County, as distinct from the Santa Maria Valley grapes from last month.)

This wine has a watery mouthfeel, and mostly acidic and tannic tastes with maybe a bit of leather.  I might have drank it a little young; the acid will probably mellow and the flavors of strawberry and caramel come through stronger with time.  Not great, but I liked it.

14.4% alcohol
