Review: *** $$ SharpShooter Pinot Noir, Central Coast, California, 2007

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for bargain-priced Central Coast Pinot Noir.

By way of background, opening thoughts: I gave the 2006 SharpShooter Pinot Noir two plus stars in its review almost two years ago.  Today, were testing the 2007 vintage.

Original tasting and review : This is SharpShooter Pinot Noir, Central Coast, California, 2007, finished at 13.5% alcohol.

In the glass: Light to medium ruby.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows clean, cinnamon-spicy pinot fruit, lightly-hued.  From the aroma, seems like this will be easy and friendly.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact fresh, even and gentle red fruit, light in acids, but with a clean, even, spicy finish.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.  A strong showing for any value-priced U.S.-sourced pinot noir.
