10 Fess Parker Santa Barbera Pinot Noir ($30)  ☺☺

This Fess Parker is the budget end of their range but still provides deep Cherry flavors and lots of mouthwatering raspberries. A slight hint of cranberry on the palette adds a slightly acidic taste and this rounded with soft tannins creates an interesting mix. Good balance and is probably best drunk with food such as ribs or higher aromatic meats.
