2017 Alfredo Roca Pinot Noir...$13.99
Readers looking for a value-priced Pinot Noir should check out the 2017 Fincas Pinot Noir, which was sourced from two sites, both a mix of sandy, loamy clay soils, and was brought up in tank and oak. It offers true Pinot Noir typicity in its spicy, black cherry, and underbrush aromas and flavors. With medium-bodied richness, no hard edges, and a good finish, it's ideal for drinking over the coming couple of years
