Mirassou 2007 Pinot Noir (California)
I have had this wine a few times and I am still thrilled to open a bottle with all its red fruit and enjoyability – not sure if there is any left in the marketplace or if they have moved on to a new vintage, but the 2007 is juicy and fun to drink – it does not tax the nose or the palate and makes for an easy sipping wine on a lazy Sunday evening after a hard day of household choirs. The red fruit has gone a little darker, but not all the way to the side. The plastic cork is going to ensure the short lifespan of this wine so be sure to drink up over the next 2 years.
