Mirassou – 2008 Pinot Noir

I am very torn about how to describe this wine.  It isn’t bad at all, but in the same breath I’ll tell you that it lends to being unremarkable.  The aromas are light with notes of cherry and currant.  I found it to be of particularly light body – more so than most pinot noirs.  The color – a jewel ruby.  The finish is modest.  I think that this would be a nice transitional wine for the person who is just starting to venture into red territory.  It’s light, and doesn’t have a notable sharpness, either from acids or tannins.  It could easily go with salmon or other similar seafood.  It would tend to get lost if paired with a steak.
