2012 Murphy Goode Pinot Noir mini review

Garnet in color with a beautiful soft light red berry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays soft light red berries to match the nose. Strawberries and raspberries along with some nice rustic notes. There’s a hint of sweetness. I would give it an 88-89 or so. Not in the LCBO but $22.98 available from Wine-wire.

From the winery’s web site:
We sourced our 2013 Pinot Noir from the cool, windswept regions this varietal likes best. From Mendocino to Monterey, we chose coastal vineyards that ripen grapes to vibrant black cherry character and bring out the hints of dried sage this wine reveals under the right conditions. Aging in both French and American oak contributed subtle notes of vanilla. No one can resist a darn Goode Pinot—try this one with coastal fare like cedar plank salmon or pair with your favorite pulled pork sandwich.

APPELLATION:California COMPOSITION:100% Pinot Noir T.A.:0.55g/100mL BOTTLE SIZE:750 ml pH:3.8 ALC. BY VOL.:13.5%

Our 2013 Pinot Noir comes from vineyards up and down the coast of California, including Monterey, Santa Barbara and Mendocino. Cool conditions in these prime growing spots keep grapes at a perfect balance between vibrant dark fruit character and bright acidity. Notes of vanilla from aging in French and American oak add complexity to the intense black cherry aromas and flavors.
