Cloudline Pinot Noir

More from the Thanksgiving wine files. Lots of folks like Pinot Noir with their Turkey Day feasts. Personally, I’m ok with whatever everyone else likes for Thanksgiving and I wanted to offer a variety of choices, so I picked up this bottle of 2007 Cloudline Pinot Noir at the Madison Wine Exchange.  It cost about $17, had a plastic cork, and clocked in at 13.5% alcohol by volume.  The wine hails from Oregon and I see it available on the internet for as low as $14. At $14, this is a really good value Pinot Noir.

On the nose I got spice, cherry, raspberry, red fruit, and a hint of Coke. In the mouth I found cherry, spice, pepper, raspberry, and Dr. Pepper.  If you are looking for a sub $20, this is a really good bet for the money, and even more so if you can find it for the $14 I see online.
