NV Noble Vines Collection 667 Monterey Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $7.99 (Trader Joe’s). Produced and bottled by Noble Wines, Napa and Manteca. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Aromas of black cherry, spice and a heavy dose of vanilla. The mid weight core of black cherry fruit is framed by oak-driven toast and tobacco flavors. Very simple, with a silky texture, and a hint of astringency and alcoholic warmth on the finish. Score: 85. Reviewed September 14, 2018
