Jackhammer Pinot Noir Central Coast 2010: Not Your Grandmother’s Pinot! @CtlCstUncorked @winelibrary

This is the first bottle we opened from our Winelibrary order (love that they ship to PA!).  This Pinot from Jackhammer has grapes from each of the Central Coast counties (Monterey, San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara) and is representative of all.  For $14, this is a bargain as it’s tough to find a solid Pinot for much less than $25.  This is a very full Pinot that reminds me more of a Tempranillo as it’s fleshy fruit is quite evident.  It’s smooth without the earthy-ness that comes with the “traditional” pinots.  Loved it!
