Murphy-Goode 2008 Pinot Noir

Murphy-Goode 2008 Pinot Noir, $11.99-$17.99, 89 points, was bought at Market Basket with a three dollar coupon.
Color is ruby-red with grainy orange flashes, the aroma is Black-currant and a bit vegetative, the body is light to medium, the flavor is a delicious gestalt (Balanced) of tart Red cherry mellowed as if by a cold mountain stream, and the finish is a first for me: a lingering candied spice finish reminiscent of a "Fireball" on the roof of my palate. This is a very good Pinot Noir for not much money! If low priced PN has disappointed you in the past, and even if your budget isn't small, this wine is a value and complimented our cuisine just fine.

We paired this with Ethan's culinary delight of pork-loin as presented:
