Each Wednesday I try to find a quality wine that won’t bust the budget. Josh Cellars Pinot Noir 2016.
Pale cranberry in color with a clear rim. The nose is graphite, cedar shavings, some floral notes and a touch of menthol. Very nice. The flavors are tart cherry, strawberry, cranberry and black pepper. Silky tannins. A long, long warming finish with a touch of oak. Very pleasant.
This is a well crafted mid-week Pinot for around $15. I give it 87 points IMHO.
