The Duckling Drinks Pinot Noir

Indigo Hills
2001 Pinot Noir
$10-ish on the interweb

I have no idea where and when I purchased this wine. It wasn't on either of the receipts from my last two trips to Central Market in February or July, and the bottle was all dusty when I took it out of the cooler. It may date from pre-cooler days, and may not have been stored very well before this year. Keeping that in mind, it was still OK.

When I first poured it, I was a little put off by the color - a dull pinkish, red. However, it had a nice cherry aroma to it. Its main flavor was cranberry with citrus - very similar to a Cosmopolitan. Like I said, it was just OK. I usually like a red with a bigger, deeper flavor. This one was a little thin for my taste.
