(2012 Vintage) Mark West Winery specializes in Pinot Noir. Sourced primarily from California's coastal appellations, these vineyards provide grapes of intense fruit aromatics and flavors. After a gentle crushing, the grapes were fermented in small tanks with daily punch downs to extract color and flavors. Pressed lightly, the wine was then aged in French and Hungarian oak for approximaely eight months before bottling. Red and black cherry flaovrs abound with a note of spice from oak aging. Rich in texture with a lingering finish and versatile enough to complement just about any cuisine.
An oak powerhouse, earth and smoke and leather on the nose, medium body with a big bright hit of fruit, followed by a vanilla glow, then a nice tannic bite on the end. A surprisingly powerful pinot.
The best $10 Pinot Noir I've ever had...a full nose of strawberry and cherry, full cherry juicyness on the tongue with a touch of spice and even a hint of vanilla. Excellent!
Great affordable everyday pinot. One of my go to wines. Regularly stocked in my wine cabinet. Usually on sale at my local Target for $9.99.
The best Pinot Noir for a nightly glass and most affordable. Way under priced for the quality
I drink this when I'm alone, but it's only worth around $10 point per bottle
Smooth. Hits the nose a little hard. Not my fave Pinot but good.
2010, 2011, is very good and 2012 is not so good
