Echelon Pinot Noir 2013

As we move into fall with the impending holidays, I thought I might post these notes from seasons past.

Varietal: Pinot Noir
Vintage: 2013
Appellation: California
Price: $7.99 at Trader Joe’s

Notes: The color of this Pinot Noir was a medium garnet.  The bouquet contained a generous amount of cedar as well as earth, berries, and a hint of beef.  It was light-bodied with good acidity.  This Echelon also had 13% alcohol and medium tannins.  On the palate I tasted cherry, ash, pomegranate, and tea.
