Firesteed Oregon 2011 Pinot Noir, $11.99-$19.99, 88 points, poured a light cranberry red with a very broad clear rim-ring.
The nose was a lovely strawberry with a floral component.
Just over the threshold of a light-bodied red wine, Firesteed 2011 PN presented good acidity with mild tannin.
Strawberry and tart pomegranate flavors were good.
Finished on the trailing palate, watermelon, spice, and though ironic, a slight but noticeable 12% alcohol.
