2006 - Bookster Pinot Noir
Dietetic cherry pie
Nov 03, 2010
1 star 1 star 1 star
The Bookster Pinot Noir from Sonoma, CA, hails from Sherbrooke Cellars wholesalers and importers. They offer some interesting wines, like Finnegan's Fin and Chaz Point Cabernet Sauvignon, but their impoverished website is one of the sparsest I've encountered.Let's see what this young, value-priced pinot noir is like....In the glass, it is a medium mahogany red - not atypical for the varietal. Aromas are of candied cherries, medium-bold.On the palate, you experience an extremely smooth, almost svelte consistency - like dietetic cherry pie. That's both the good and the bad news. No one could ever call this unpleasant. But hard to acknowledge it as truly memorable. I will give it three stars out of five.More reviews at spiritofwine.blogspot.com.

Medium to dark red with a clear rim.  Shows a bit of bottle age.  Barnyard, roses, and classic Pinot fruit flavors on the nose.  Quite powerful.  Utterly delicious once it hits your palate, a very big wine with taut tannins that carry through to a long finish, 60+ seconds.  Highly enjoyable.

Best thing this side of Taval

I ordered this rose as a fall back in the absence of a dry blush from the other side of the pond and was blown away by its depth and flexibility.  Paired well with sauteed softshell crab as well as slow roasted veal at a top Boston restaurant.  Now I've just got to find some.

This wine (and this vintage perhaps?) is all about texture rather than power.  Very nice, with balanced cherry red fruits, acid, and alcohol.  Young now, this wine is already beautiful and will continue to develop in bottle.

More like 3.5 stars.  Slightly difficult to pinpoint!  Tasted over 2 days.  Day 1: Acidic & tart with an intense menthol / medicinal quality.  Tannic.  Day 2: A bit more fragrant with the medicinal aromas still there.  Very nice medium red color with a pink rim.  Rough & tumble on the palate, it throws down a mix of cherry, wood, and cola.  This could be good if you've got the time.

Tasted over two days.  Day 1: Pretty & floral.  Slightly tart with cherry and a nice stony minerality.  Day2: Medium red, still very nice but the acid is showing a little more.  Cola, cherry, floral.  "Yummy."

Medium bodied with lots of sweet flowers on the nose.  A little woody, should mellow out.

Very muted on the nose, hard to get any solid aromas.  Very nice on the palate, mellow, a little green (ha!).  Very pleasant.

Interesting nose, fun to play with.  Slightly dusty, but rich and smooth.  Flavors of cherry on the palate with some meat and a hint of menthol.  Has personality.

Wow.  The nose was gummed down a bit with heavy fruit, but it still smelled delightful.  Definite white pepper mixed in with the fruit and floral aromas.  Cherry pit and underbrush on the palate with nice acid.  Fleshy and intense, morphs in the mouth switching between floral and fruit flavors.  Very impressed.

2006 - Rippon Vineyard Pinot Noir
Mar 19, 2009
1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star
Deep ruby , with a slightly lighter rim.  The nose has a plethora of red and black fruits including raspberry, cranberry, blackberry, and black cherry.  The fruit notes are balanced nicely by the complex earth and spice driven components like licorice, rhubarb, forest floor, and floral notes.  This wine has a elegant mouth-feel and a long complex finish that lingers pleasantly for 45+ seconds.  This wine shows tremendous depth and provides great pleasure now but will age for at least 8-10 years.  Whether you enjoy Burgundy or California Pinot this is one that is sure to please both palates!

Medium ruby red to garnet with a pink rim.  Complex nose of black fruits, tangy cherry, and some violet.  Nice balance on this medium weight wine with more flavors of cherry & rhubarb on the palate, and the finish goes on for well over a minute!  Highly recommended.

I was fortunate enough to get this wine as a gift from my good friend.  It has been a while since I have had it, but if I remember correctly it is an organic wine.  This Pinot is a nice light, fruity wine.  A great wine for someone who is just getting started in the world of reds!

A great Oregon Pinot from a classic producer

If you love Pinot Noir this is a wine for you.  This is elegant and classy, definitely not over extracted and well made.  This is not a blockbuster by any means and that is why I like it.  On the nose I get notes of Watermelon, Pomegranite, Sage, and Menthol. I really like this wine.
