Girasole Mendocino County Pinot Noir

The appellation for this Pinot Noir is Mendocino rather than Anderson Valley, and the wine is modestly priced (about $15 a bottle) as a result. It does, however, have many of the positive traits I associate with more expensive Anderson Valley wines.

Medium dark ruby. Raspberry, cranberry, cinnamon. Purity of fruit flavors that are common with more expensive Pinots from Anderson Valley. Intense flavors with a citric edge that I like. Improves over the course of the meal and is by no means overwhelmed by the bold flavors of a hamburger. Worth a rry if you like Anderson Valley Pinot.
