Great deals: Mark West Pinot Noir 2010

20120410-205343.jpg

One of the best buys I’ve seen lately is the 2010 vintage of Mark West Pinot Noir. Berries, plum, anise and molasses are evident in a soft smooth wine. This 13.8% alcohol wine has a beautiful garnet color and a good balance of fruit and spice. It paired well with seared pork in a red wine tarragon sauce.

I have seen this wine priced at as much as $13 a bottle, but recently found it for under $6 a bottle. If you find a deal that good get plenty of it to have on hand for pork, turkey and pizza.

  1. My wife and I just had a bottle of this in Mexico at a dinner out. It was terribly overpriced due to import duties and restaurant markup, but YUM! What a great wine with a nice peppery finish. We are going to be on the hunt for this one now that we’re back in California.
