2002 Montana Pinot Noir

I like this a lot. In Germany, I have only ever seen this wine in a very large branch of the Edeka chain. Smaller branches do not stock it and nor do stockists who carry other Montana wines.

Like Montana's Cabernet Merlot, this is a dark, full bodied wine though there end the similarities. This wine has a very smooth plummy, blackberry taste and an appealing smooth aroma that makes you want to take a large mouthfull.

Personally, I rank this wine as highly as the Cabernet Merlot though I suspect that this wine will have a wider appeal than its brother.

Rating: 7/10 Value: Fair
