Day 153-2007 Pinot Noir for $17.99 by the Village Vintner in Carpentersville, Il
We tried some Pinot Noir's on the Friday before we went to the Village Vintner and really didn't find one in our price range that we liked too much. However, this vintner tends to make very mellow reds and we bought this wine without trying it first. We were not disappointed this is a very mellow red, with dark fruit flavors, that paired well with pasta. We drank this wine with and without food, as it was smooth enough, without the dry, tannic feel of som other Pinot Noirs. We would definitely buy this red again, however, it is a little on the pricier side and so this would not be my every day red. If you like Pinot Noir, this is still a good price for the quality.
