Barton & Guestier 2005 Bistro Wine Pinot Noir

Bright clear red color. Smell of black cherry soda. Pleasant fruity cherry flavor. some plum at the end, bit of alcohol warmth. Would cheerfully buy again at $9.99.

A curious thing: the maker's front label declares alcohol by volume 13%, the rear importer's label 12.5%.

It'll probably be a couple of weeks before I need to buy wine and I post again. Clearly I'll need to modify my wine-buying procedure, adding more variety and reducing the incidence of full cases.
