Beringer Napa Valley 2010 Pinot Noir

Beringer Napa Valley 2010 Pinot Noir, $9.99-$19.99, 90 points, begins more purple to ruby in color than does it appear burgundy; watery rim? of course, this is a young wine!
Aromatically, this wine is rather tame, though some floral red fruit and alcohol (14.3%) is manifest.
Beringer Napa Valley 2010 Pinot Noir is another wine of textual interest, as it is very silky, weak to mild acidity and tannin, yet medium-plus in body, and though it is juicy, it is not flabby as one might expect.
If ever I've tasted a gulper of a wine, this is it; with subtle flavors of blackberries and boysenberry, nothing stands in the way of just drinking this deliciously smooth wine until you reach the fair finish, where you may pause for the spice and eucalyptus.
At the 'blow-out' price of $9.99, I purchased a much better wine than the price I paid for this, but don't expect fireworks.
