Had this at a bar tonight/

Enjoyed swirling it in my mouth.
Fruity as hell.
Can't name any more fancy terminology / smells / tastes than that, but it was heavenly to drink !!

Anyone else a big fan ?

    Enjoy your Mirassou.

      Do you recall the vintage?

      Mirassou has long made some very fine Pinot Noirs, including the legendary 1969 bottling dedicated to Max Hubner. However, I haven't had any of their Pinots since the family sold the winery to Gallo.

      Sounds like I should revisit them . . .

        You might want to grab a bottle of the Acacia Carneros Pinot Noir, and give it a try too. Fruit forward and smooth. It will usually age well (up to 4 years) too.

          I was just talking to someone about this very same wine tonight and how smooth and balanced it was. Great value under $10.
