Just when I thought I'd end my Halloween Wines I stumble upon this irresistible Pinot Noir. Sorry!
Vampire Napa Valley 2010 Pinot Noir, $11.99, 84 points, was not a treat, at least not for me (price was good).
The Vampire PN was as much a disappointment as their Merlot was a pleasant surprise.
This wine had a typical PN color of cranberry to ruby-red, the aroma is spicy cherry with unpleasant rubber hints, and the flavor is easily summed-up as a sweet, tangy, and syrupy-red cherry. This Pinot Noir did improve a bit with air.
