2005 Castle Los Carneros Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., $16. Castle has been farming vineyards in Los Carneros and the Sonoma Valley for more than twenty years. · The nose is of some interest showing off black cherries, baking spices, and fresh roses. Alcohol peaks out. Light in body and intensity with a soft mouth feel. Flavors of cherries, red licorice, and tobacco are decent. Not a bad drink for the money. My wife liked this a lot (she is partial to bright cherry flavors). Reviewed August 4, 2008
