IRONY MONTEREY PINOT NOIR 2006
The Grade: OUTSTANDING. The Mojo: The Irony Monterey Pinot Noir 2006 is a wonderful example of how good, affordable, varietally-correct Pinot Noir can still be made in California. Light-to-medium-bodied, with mild tannins, cherry and berry aromas with hints of spice, soft cherry and red berry fruit flavors with notes of roasted nuts, fresh herbs and spices, and a touch of vanillin oak give plenty of character to a wine that clocks in under $15 a bottle. All-in-all, a delicious red wine that won't break the bank - now that's news you can use.
