Review: *** $$ Napa Cellars Pinot Noir, Napa Valley, California, 2013

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

Finding good value pinot noirs is a tough hunt.  With Napa Cellars, I just about found one with the 2009 vintage in 2011.  Let's see how we're doing in 2015...

Original tasting and review : This is Napa Cellars Pinot Noir, Napa Valley, California, 2013, finished at 14.5% alcohol and first sampled 2 years from vintage date, in April, 2015.

In the glass: Deep ruby and brick red.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows soft red berries, lightly oaked.  From the aroma, seems like this will be easy-going.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact aromatic and flavorful with medium red berries plus plenty of oak stretching out the mid-palate.  Black raspberry with plenty of mouth-cleansing acids.  Clean, robust finish.

In summary: Overall, rates an easy three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
