Wine Entry : Ernest & Julio Gallo Sonoma Country Pinot Noir 2001

Pinot Noir, the occasional grape varietal that does brush my palate. When it great, it is divine. But when it is bad, it can be sure a pain. Thankfully, this bottle from Crystal Wines was on the right side of Pinots. At $35, it is a reasonable Californian wine of a pale ruby colour.
Smell : Intriguing violet and morning glory, but with some unpleasant sulphides which dispells after subsequent sniff.

Taste : Mineral, metallic flavours. Smooth easy drinking with nice complicated light pepper.

After-Taste : Easy on the palate and comforting finish. Pleasing to drink with no/mild tannins.
