Wine Tasting: Robert Mondavi Winery 2001 Pinot Noir

Robert Mondavi Winery
(Napa Valley)
2001 Pinot Noir
Rating: 8/10

Exceptional flavor - strong bright grape flavoring. Just dry enough without being too dry. Oddly, it could almost pass for an excellent carbonated refined grape drink. Very easy to enjoy. Flavor is delivered smoothly, alcohol is barely noticed. Probably a novice-level wine lacking complexity, but well-suited to my novice palate.

$18 from my local Vons.
