2009 Fat Cat California Pinot Noir

12.5% alc., pH 3.56, TA 0.56, Glucose/ Fructose 4.25 g/L, $10. From Bronco Wine Company. Winemaker John Allbaugh. · Faint perfume of dark fruits. Fairly rich and tasty core of plum and blackberry flavors with some oak in the background. Mildly firm tannins provide structure and restrained oak contributes interest. Not easily recognizable as Pinot Noir, but a casual and mellow drink that matches the jazz theme on the label. Decent. Reviewed May 15, 2011
