Carneros Creek 2001 Pinot Noir

Visit the Carneros Creek Website here

Date of tasting: October 25th 2004

Aroma Liquorice, tobacco, the inside of an old car, cough drops, cherry strepsils, mustard seeds.

Taste Harsh, fresh, very young. It jarred with the sweetish tomato sauce I paired it with until added chili flakes to the food. More agreeable after opening up to the air and accompanying a spicier tasting dish, but never quite losing its bitter medicinal flavour.

It was a gift, therefore the price is unknown. Internet searches suggest it is selling in restaurants at prices between $24 and $32.

    It wasnt that great really - I wouldnt buy it again, but from what I could gander from my not highly sucessful internet search was that some different vintages might be much better than this one. Their website was partly under construction so I wasn't really able to find out as much about this wine as i would have liked to.
