2007 Castle Rock Mendocino County Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., $10. · Lightly colored and weighted with very shy smoky cherry aromas and soft simple red fruits on the palate. Respectable for its elegance and softness and its loyalty to the charm of the varietal, but lacks interest and flavor punch. Reviewed November 17, 2008
