2005 Muirwood Arroyo Seco PINOT NOIR (Monterey County, California)

A cheap, but mediocre, Pinot Noir.

Medium light ruby. Decent, vaguely Pinot nose of cherry cough syrup, scorched earth, and pumpkin bread. Straightforward cherry flavors are marred somewhat by high acidity and some tannic astringency. A decent quaff, but there's so many better wines out there there's no reason to get a wine like this. 77. Was about $12 at Spec's on Richmond.
