D.R.G. Pinot Noir – 2014 – Wine Review


DRG, pinot noir, russian valley, sonoma, california, wine, reviewSeptember 30, 2016

I’m not sure how I acquired this wine (probably a gift), but I wish I hadn’t.  With a medicinal taste that forced a face scrunch, there wasn’t much enjoyment in this wine.

Comparing to a fair amount of reviews on the net, my experience is surprising.  The general reviews for this wine are quite good.  That was not my experience from first opening, after exposure to air, and after a couple of days in the frig.  Perhaps the wine is too young or I had a bad bottle but, unless you receive it as a gift, I’d pass on giving it a second chance.  Based on the net, the wine is priced in the $10 to $20 range.


Trader Joe’s Petit Reserve Pinot Noir – 2009 – Edna Valley – Wine Review


I purchased this after reading in a Trader Joe’s flyer it was an AVA wine.  Now I’m a little confused  how to identify a wine as AVA.  And that’s before finishing the bottle.
