Cave St. Verny Le Pinot Noir, 2007

This is a wine that's easy to overlook. But it delivers a lot of what I expect from Pinot Noir at only $7.99 a bottle.

Medium light Pinot color. Cranberries, red raspberries,spice and pepper. Not the sweet pie spice you get from some California Pinot Noir. Lean but not austere. Ripe fruit and perky acid. Nothing showy but a wine to enjoy more and more through the course of a meal.

There may be some bottle  variation with this coop wine. I enjoyed this a lot more than the last bottle I opened a few months ago.
