2013 Trader Joe’s Grand Reserve Lot #23 Carneros Pinot Noir

14% alc., $13. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Pleasant aromas of black cherry, strawberry glaze and toasty oak. Light to mid weight flavors of juicy cherry with a hint of anise and cola. A bit shallow on the attack but finishes with a burst of cherry flavor backed by slightly astringent tannins. This wine delivers what you would expect for Pinot Noir at this price point. Score: 86. Reviewed January 23, 2015 ARTICLE »
