Name: Enrique Mendoza – Pinot Noir (red wine)

Region D.O. : Alicante
Year: 2008. Alcohol: 14%. Grape type: Pinot Noir.
Approximate price: 7 €
Cherry coloured with ruby highlights.
Intense aroma even in still glass. Vegetal aromas, red fruits.
A bit alcoholic, normal for Alicante wines, as this area is very warm on summer and the grapes get mature very fast.
It reminds me Monastrell grape type.
Soft entry into mouth, a velvety touch and a tannic aftertaste, astringent, long.
A fine Alicante wine made of a french type of grape Pinot Noir.
Must try it! …and of course… Visit the winery!
