2006 Gala Rouge Pinot Noir Vin De Pays D’OC

12.5%, $10. Vintage poster on the label which touts the wine for bunco, poker and weddings. · Plenty of garnet color. Smoky dark fruits from start to finish with very silky tannins. Soft, smooth and easy to drink with simple black fruit flavors. More Syrah than Pinot in flavor and character (must be other red varietals added to this Pinot Noir). Very similar to the Fetzer bottling but with less tannin. Reviewed February 18, 2008
