Wild Horse Pinot Noir 2012
Go-to pinot
Big winner. More medium bodied than a classic pinot - outstanding every day wine.

Algueira Mencia 2013
Something is off
Unsophisticated and pretentious. ok not really, but something was just off about this one. Hints of mildew or overtones of dirty socks. Just not a winner.

Rocca di Frassinello Poggio Alla Guardia 2009
Can't get enough of this one
It's been a long time since i've gotten back into some Italian wines, but this one did it. Great every day wine, very balanced and smooth.

R Wines 'Evil' Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
Too rich for my taste
Too strong/rich an alcohol taste up front for my preference.

Domaine Grand Veneur Cotes du Rhone Reserve 2010
Very good every day wine
This CdR has proven an excellent dinner wine. It is a touch soft - not quite as acidic as I'd like, but I keep it at a proper temperature and enjoy it. It may be a little too creamy if it was served at room temp.

Belle Glos 'Meiomi' Pinot Noir 2011
Excellent pinot noir
This pinot has enough body to surprise people that usually don't consider them.

Matua Valley Winery Pinot Noir 2013
Lightweight refreshing wine
I enjoyed a bottle of this at a local restaurant after working out last night, and it was the perfect choice. Good for a summer night or when you want something refreshing, but prefer to stick to red.
