Pinot Noir

2002 Ramsay North Coast Pinot Noir

Posted on September 13, 2009 - Filed Under Pinot Noir, Red wines, Reviews, Wine Reviews, style | Leave a Comment

Wow! This was recommended as a Manager’s Pick at thinking man’s liquor store Twin Liquors. The first sip is stupendous. Chocolatey, BBQ’y, great lasting finish. For the price, this is unbelievable. It certainly beat my expectations. Like going to a gay bar, getting really drunk, and taking home what you think is a transvestite, but it turns out to be an actual woman! Wow, I can’t stop thinking about it.

(Editor’s note: The wine, not the transvestite)

Man, I’m starting to dig Pinot Noirs, and this one is *funky*. Caramel, chocolate, and sugar plums, all dancing around in a thick, smoky, brown sugar sort of a wine, but without being a hangovery, uber-sweet piece of crap.

2002 Hangtime Pinot Noir

Brandy’s back! A pungent aroma. I like this wine. Its mild, pleasant. A good deep-dish pizza wine. Brandy says, “I feel a *pop* in my mouth. This would be good with a carpaccio.”

Later… “What’s a carpaccio?”

2000 La Crema Pinot Noir

This…wine…fucking…RULES! Fruity, creamy, incredible. The only thing hurting this wine are the joyful tears I openly wept into the glass upon my first sip. Brandy says, “My brother cut his finger off today.”

Upon reflection, and much later, I thought, “Whoa, his finger?!”

2003 Avila Pinot Noir

I had to downgrade a previous wine to which I had given a 92, because this one is better and 2 bucks cheapter! It’s fucking incredible! If this wine were an eighty-year-old man, with saggy, gray testicles changing in the YMCA locker room, I would kneel down and give this wine the blowjob of its life. That’s how good it is. Fuck!

p.s. Motherfucker!
