Grapes: Pinot Noir
From the Bottle: “Depuis 1822” (Since 1822).
Color Deep red
Taste Wow. Smooth. Bitter. Sweet. All somehow meshed into a perfect blend. This is truly a delicious Pinot Noir. I would absolutely buy and drink it again, and again.
Smell Definitely cherries.
Taste The best word I can think of is mellow. There isn’t much of an alcohol taste here. Instead, it tastes of cherries and chocolate, and isn’t acidic. Basically, it’s all of the best things in wine with none of the nasty. It’s definitely a worthy wine, although the price tag is dragging me down a bit. For average folks, this can’t be an everyday thing.
Verdict: We both agreed on the flavor – Morin Pere & Fils Pinot Noir is good stuff. We disagreed, however, on the price. A feels that the quality justifies the price, while D is typically put off by anything that costs more than $12 per bottle. On taste alone, we agree this is a five star wine. On taste and price, D’s frugality drags it down to a four and a half.
