2010 Mirassou Pinot noir

Garnet in color with a nose of red berries. On the mid pallet the wine displays some strawberry and raspberry to match the nose. The wine is one the lighter side of medium in length on the finish with some mild tannins. The sweetness lingers for a bit in the mouth. Not a bad wine but definitely on the fruit forward side of things with not a whole lot of complexity on the finish. I would give it an 87-88.
