Trader Joe's Russian River Pinot Noir Reserve Lot 85, 2011

This has all the qualities of a top end Russian River Pinot Noir. And I paid only $10 for it at Trader Joe's--an excellent value.

Medium deep ruby. Smells and flavors of cranberry, cherry and ginger--all well proportioned and framed by acid and oak. Texture and style of Russian River Pinot. Good now and should age well. I will look for more the next time I make it to TJ's, but I fear that I will be too late.
