Review: *** $ Estancia Pinot Noir, Monterey County, California, 2013 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Estancia Pinot Noir.

Original tasting and review : This is Estancia Pinot Noir, Monterey County, California, 2013, finished at 13.5% alcohol and first sampled two years from vintage date, in February, 2015.


In the glass: Light magenta and pink.

On the nose: Poured at cool room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows spicy and cinnamon with solid fruit.  From the aroma, seems like this will be fleshy and fresh.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact purple, somewhat candied fruit with light elements of red cherries.  Sweet finish with tangy acids creeping into your cheeks.

In summary: Overall, crisp, lightly sweet experience that rates an easy three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.  Best value at bargain price point.
