WINE FIND

January 21, 2009|By MICHAEL DRESSER

It is rare to find a pinot noir at about this price that is even drinkable. This widely distributed wine from Mondavi is actually enjoyable. It's a medium-bodied, fruity red that is entirely free of the quirky flavors that tend to crop up in budget pinot noirs. It is reminiscent of a well-made regional Bourgogne from a top-notch producer. This easy-drinking wine with bright black-cherry flavors would be a versatile companion to a wide variety of foods - from red meat to fish - and an excellent addition to restaurant wine lists.
