Fadeaway Pinot Noir

I’m hoping this falls into the cheap-but-good category! Let’s see how this goes down with a simple onion & pepper pizza.

Fadeaway Pinot Noir (2012) Monterey County, California – $8

20140423_075404(0)Color: on the purplish side, but it’s not dense or opaque – which probably means it really is 100% Pinot, and hasn’t been stretched with Zin or Syrah.

Aroma: raspberry and strawberry fruit – just a little hint of cherry as well.

Taste: more fruit – it’s light and lively on the tongue, and the finish is very soft and easy with a little floral and forest-floor character.

Recommended – this is an eminently drinkable true Pinot for under $15, which is a rare find these days.
