667 Monterey 2010 Pinot Noir, $14.99, 88+ points.
I found this wine at The Londonderry, NH Hannaford's Supermarket.
Drinking a Monterey PN was instigated by, Steve Heimoff in his Nov. 8 post, where he lets us all know that he would be in Monterey Town on Saturday doing a live program and reviewing some "big-guns" wines. So, I reverted to doing one more Pinot Noir to celebrate with all those folks having a grand-ole-time.
667 Monterey 2010 Pinot Noir (I have tried their 337 Cabernet and their 181 Merlot, both top QPR wines) is a dark magenta with violet hints, the tart cherry on the nose is complimented by earth, cinnamon, a bit of grape-blueberry.
This Pinot is very fresh and very smooth, a quaffer with lots of juicy blueberry, blackberry, and hints of cran-cherry, and having an easy finish of spiced plum. Quite a nice wine for the full price of just $14,99.
