Tasting Notes: Montinore Estate Pinot Noir 2017

Updated: Feb 29



I pulled back on the wine throttle this week. I'm getting married soon and found that putting the bottle down was an easy way to cut calories. But the show must go on to some extent. Here is the one wine I tried this week! See the video of the tasting here.


Wine: Montinore Estate Pinot Noir

Vintage: 2017

T&T Notes: I let a glass sit out for a few hours while I did house chores. The color was a faded or light ruby, with a thin appearance. It had the earthy smells you can expect from Pinot Noir, mushrooms, mulch, gravel. When tasting I got notes of plum, and ripe cherry. Along with an underlined earthy soil taste. It was a fine wine. But wouldn't get again near the $20 price point.
