Pisoni, Pinot Noir, 2006

Wine Rating: 94

I was really please to find out that as a result of the ‘Monkey Wine’ review I wrote a few issues ago, that many of you not only went out and tried it but that you really enjoyed it. I’ve been personally seeking out great wines for years and I can tell you that the task of finding an inexpensive Pinot Noir, that I can really enjoy, is not easy and is in fact quite the challenge. The ease of reviewing the best of the best, the top, the famous high scoring wines, that we all find listed in prominent wine magazines, is both easier and more enjoyable. I mean seriously, in the majority of cases, what’s not to like. I’ve said this before but it bears repeating… I purchase every damn bottle I drink. No winery is sending me bottles to critique or praise. I buy what I enjoy drinking most and then document the details and send that off to you. What I can promise you is this. 1.) I’m going to necessarily love every wine I’ll drink. 2.) I’ll be completely honest with you. 3.) I’ll not waste your time or my palate on a mediocrity.
