It’s Josh here folks. You all know I’m picky about my Pinot Noir, no matter what the price is. When I tasted the new vintage of the Pinot Project Pinot Noir, I immediately bought a case. This is that elusive sub-$15 Pinot Noir every Pinot-Lover is looking for. Soft, silky, but full of flavor, this could easily pass for a $25 Sonoma County Pinot Noir.
And that’s no surprise because this is put together by the team at Skurnik Wines, one of the finest importers and wholesalers in the US. Back in 2009, company founder Michael Skurnik was sick and tired of tasting horrible, under-$15, domestic Pinot Noir. Trust me, they were abundant back then! He decided to go to his top producers in Sonoma, Montery, and Santa Barbara counties.
That’s where the Pinot Project was born and that’s where we are today. Click here to check out Skurnik’s Pinot Noir producers in California. Pretty impressive to say the least, but no one is spilling the beans. Nope, this is a wine put together with grapes and finished wines from top producers and rising stars. But the fine folks at Skurnik can’t disclose their fruit sources because many of these folks sell their wines for $50+!
No, this doesn’t taste like $50 Pinot Noir. But I think Wine Enthusiast described it perfectly: “Aromas and flavors of ripe plum and sweet cherry make this full-bodied wine taste generous and inviting. While only 20% of the blend is aged in barrels, an impression of sweet oak spices rounds the edges and warms the palate.”
