Another wine from the Home Goods bargain bin, this bottle has a fat bottom and an image of a big, red magnet on the front with no text. Pretty cool looking bottle. It’s marked down from $17.99, which is a reasonable price for a Pinot so I’m hoping for a decent level of quality here. The color is darker and more cloudy than I’d expect of a Pinot Noir. It has a nice aroma though. The flavor is dry and stout for this type of wine, with a spicy zing on the finish. I like the wine well enough, though I wouldn’t have been able to peg it as a Pinot Noir in a blind tasting.
