Estancia pinot noir review: THIS REVIEW WOULD BE SO MUCH BETTER IF I WEREN’T SO DRUNK RIGHT NOW

This evening, we check out a 2009 Monterey County, California pinot noir that I picked up for $12.

Usually I try to write helpful reviews of wines that you can afford AND that you can find at the store, as opposed to strange, super-expensive wines that you will never see in your lifetime.  A radical approach?  Oh yeah.

So let’s do that.  This pinot noir is $12.  That’s affordable.  It’s Estancia, so you’ll be able to find it.  And, the verdict:  Estancia pinot noir from Monterey County is complex, spicy, earthy, mushroomy, very pinot-ish for $12, and absolutely freaking delicious.  So that’s the problem.  I’m not sure this review will be “helpful.”   Mainly because I’ve had WAY too much of it.  This is not completely my fault.  I mean, they made it really good.

So, pretty much, I would say you should go out and buy it.  Estancia pinot noir is:
