I had never been able to find Murphy-Goode’s Pinot Noir before, and was beginning to think it was an urban legend! Low and behold… found it at my local store on sale for $11.99! Definitely a steal for a Pinot. Cherries and vanilla dominate the nose, round-ish mouthfeel and a tart cherry finish. I like the fruit in this! But I didn’t want my liver to hate me, so I used my new Vinotemp battery operated vacuum pump to save it for the next day. Day 2- its even better! Unusual for a Pinot. My friend tried it as well and was pleasantly surprised at the low price. The mouthfeel and finish were a bit more bright the second day and the fruit popped out even more. Definite vanilla/caramel on the finish.
