2005 Husch Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

This is one of my last super ultra discont wines – marked from about $20 to under $10. It was great while it lasted.

The nose is quite interesting – cat piss, chocolate, and Coke. Interesting.

A bit fuzzy – chocolate, cherry, cola, strawberry, a big dollop of oak, some cinnamon and other spices – almost a cayenne pepper hit.

Where this fails is the finish – maybe some cola lingers and perhaps some strawberry, but really it's disappears quickly.

Even if this was $20 I'd still give it a strong recommendation – I'm sad I only got one bottle – good quality Pinot is tough to get and this one definitely is a good one in this price range.
