2007 Paraiso Vineyards Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands Richard Auffrey October 19, 2009 Tasting Notes 1 Comment This has long been one of my favorite, least expensive Pinot Noirs. It has rich fruit flavors, interesting spice notes and is fairly complex for the price. Plus, it has a moderately long and pleasant finish. It is not your typical California Pinot, but also not quite Burgundian either. But you won’t find many other comparable Pinots for under $25. WHO Paraiso Vineyards WHAT Pinot Noir WHERE California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands WHEN 2007 HOW MUCH $21.99 http://wellesleywinepress.com Robert Dwyer I’ve opened 3 bottles of this wine in the past month, and each was different. The first was over-ripe, the 2nd was dominated by dill aromas, and I thought the 3rd was good. Very strange. Not sure what to make of the bottle variation.
