Julia James Pinot Noir

Possess a deep plum color, with bright ruby edges. Rich yet medium-bodied, offering an exciting bouquet of berry, oak, earth and spice notes, with bold streaks of blueberry, raspberry, mocha and floral flavors. Finishes with an aftertaste of fresh licorice and cherries. Julia James Pinot Noir will drink nicely for 2-4 years, and pairs well with pork, salmon, chicken, and mushroom risotto.

Names one of 20 “Best Red Wines Under $20”
How is it possible to make a CA Pinot this good at this price? This baby looks like a Pinot, smells like a Pinot and tastes like a Pinot should-there’s the bright acidity of tart red cherries, hints of warmer, darker fruits, a footprint as light as a spider’s and totally devoid of oak overkill. My guess in a blind tasting: a $40 Willamette Valley or Anderson Valley Pinot

Balance, ripe fruit and a dash of cinnamon make this wine easy to appreciate and fun to drink in light of its reasonable price. It has medium body, plum and red cherry notes and a hint of spicy oak.
