Yokayo 2010 Pinot Noir

Mendocino, CA; 14.2% ABV
$5 at the Richmond, CA, store on 9 Dec

Yokayo_2010_PinotNoirWe’ve previously seen an interesting Yokayo 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, so I thought this Pinot Noir looked promising.  I indeed liked it very much, although I can see it might not be everyone’s cup of tea.

It’s pretty tasty from first pour, but it has held up very well from evening into night.  It presents flavors of dark red cherry, rich brown earth, cola / root beer, a little orange, and hints of bay leaf / pine needles.  Its darker, savory character is sort of the opposite of “bright red cherries,” so I’m not sure it will be to everyone’s taste, but I think it’s a tasty and interesting wine, the best Pinot Noir the GO has seen in a while.  None of this bottle will survive until the next day.
