Top 10 wines in the US press

Cherry Tart Pinot Noir 2012, California, US

cherrytartpinot12-w-2With the 4th of July celebrations about to kick off in the US, Dennis Sodomka, of the Augusta Chronicle, recommended this Cherry Tart Pinot Noir which he said was perfect for barbecue summer sipping.

He said: “I know most people will have beer with their Fourth of July feasts, and I might even have one or two. But don’t automatically rule out wine. We might not have invented wine (and we didn’t invent beer, either), but Americans drink a lot of it, so there’s nothing wrong with a little patriotic birthday toast made with wine. I looked for a wine that shouted American for my Fourth of July drink, and I found it with the Cherry Tart Pinot Noir 2012 from California. The label features a picture of three cherry tarts on a red-checkered tablecloth just like the one we’ll be eating on for the Fourth.

“It’s a beautiful wine, full of lush cherries, plums, strawberries and vanilla. There might be something to the power of suggestion, because drinking the wine while looking at the label made it taste like I had bitten into ripe cherries. The color even is a bright, cherry red. There’s more to the wine than just cherries, of course. The inviting aroma has hints of cloves and strawberries. The finish is long and elegant. Looking at the label you might think the wine is just a marketing gimmick, but you would be wrong.”

Price: $24-26
