Staff Pick: Acrobat Pinot Noir 2009

Wine: Acrobat 2009 Pinot Noir
Reviewer: Gwendolyn
Rating: 4 stars

acrobatReview: The Acrobat Pinot Noir is produced and bottled by King Estate winery, one of the more prominent wineries in Oregon. The color is a bright ruby, and clear (as in, you can see right through it). On the nose, I got lots of bright cherry, and I mean bright! Very fresh fruit, a touch of tobacco and sweet spices. The palate is almost zesty in its acidity. Again, this is a bright fruit wine – lots of fresh cherry and raspberry and a really lively acidity as its backbone. This is a light-bodied wine, one that is perfect with food (particularly food with acid) and a great red to drink in warm weather. Totally refreshing.

  1. We carry this wine at our restaurant in Jackson Hole, WY. I agree wholeheartedly with Gwendolyn’s tasting notes. Having it with dinner recently I also noticed the wine gained in fullness and finish as the bottle(s) sat with us through the meal.
