'11 Caretaker Pinot Noir - Innkeeper - 12-30-2013 10:43 AM

2011 Caretaker Wines, Santa Maria Valley, Central Coast CA, Pinot Noir ($10 Trader Joes; alcohol level 13.5%). Despite a light color (no mega purple used) this was definitely a Pinot and a very nice one with bright fruit and surprising body and finish.

We matched it with leftover Christmas goose in gravy, roast Yukon Gold fingerlings, and braised red cabbage.

A very nice Sunday evening dinner. Yum!
