2005 Malm Cellars Sonoma County Pinot Noir

14.4% alc., $19. Surprisingly, the bottle sports a high-class wax cap, unusual for a valuepriced wine. · The aromatics are shy with hints of cassis and toast, but build in intensity with air time. A bit of heat peaks out as the wine warms in the glass. Easy to drink , this wine is soft in texture with red cherry and berry fruit. I wanted more structure and fruit, but I could not complain at this price. A simple Pinot that is perfectly fine for washing down a grilled hamburger. Reviewed May 13, 2007
