2014 Trader Joe’s Reserve Lot # 109 Arroyo Grande Valley Pinot Noir

13.9% alc., $9.99. Vinted and bottled by Reluctant Wine Co. in Arroyo Grande, California. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. This wine is true to its Pinot Noir origins, with aromas of dark cherry, raspberry and truffle, and mid weight flavors of black cherry and purple grape. Oak is supportive without being intrusive, the tannins are silky, and this simple wine is easy to drink. Score: 86. Reviewed September 7, 2016
