Minor Threat

I don’t always show pricetags, but when I do, it is because great value.  In this case, a very fair value.  In the realm of 50$ PN’s post-Sideways, it is always nice to find something solid which is reasonably priced.  You would expect a CA appell from a PN at this pricepoint, but no.  Carneros.  Super thin light ruby with wide clear edges.  Nice deep ripe nose of true pinot-fruit and a touch of briar duskiness.  Mab a tad glyceriney?  Great fruit all the way through but not the fruit-FWD variety which smacks of scrap-booking parties.  Solid pinot nuances and fruit all the way through the mouth with considerable acids rounding things up.  There is no mistaking this for a pinot.  This is one of those pinots pinot-wonk will love and the kind non-pinot enthusiasts will go, “Hey, I don’t usually like pinot, but this is GOOD!”
