Drinking Tonight: Liberté Pinot Noir

I’ve made a cous-cous and vegetable salad, and grilled a salmon filet, so I’m going to be drinking this 2011 San Luis Obispo County Pinot Noir with it. I purchased this for $14 at Trader Joe’s.

Photo0179Color: light garnet; a good color for a young Pinot.

Aroma: berries and cherry, with just a hint of cola.

Taste: light and feminine, with more berry notes, that little touch of cola and spice, and good acidity. Very much a food wine, and a good choice for the salmon.

This qualifies as a ‘value’ Pinot – it’s almost impossible to find anything under $10 worth drinking at all in this grape, so I’m grateful to find something under $20 that’s I can keep a couple of bottles of. It’s quaffable Pinot, suitable for drinking with a little chill on it during a lazy summer afternoon.
