Notable Wine Review – Flip Flop Pinot Noir 2009

April 10, 2011 at 10:15 AM 6 comments

Here’s a semi-party episode. Well, as the party was going on, we took a few minutes to review the Flip Flop Wines.

I’m a big fan a Oregon Pinot and true Red Burgundy, but good luck finding something drinkable from there at $7!!

The Flip Flop wines are hard to beat at the price point… so now it’s my goal to find more $7 value wines that are decent and drinkable!

I am still under the impression that to find a good quality wine that expresses the grape variety and region it is grown in under $10 is extremely difficult, but you never know, this 2009 Pinot Noir makes me think, it might just be possible…

That said, this winery from California makes a friendly, very fruity, but easily drinkable Pinot Noir… See what Michele and I had to say about it… Vodpod videos no longer available.

    Thanks, I just added you to my blogroll! 🙂 Your blog is great, particularly the videos – very cool! Seems like we had similar opinions on the Pinot, nice and easy drinking… especially at $6.99!

      Thanks for adding, I just added you too! Glad you like the videos, they’re fun, but the editing can take a while ;-). Take a look at the contest video, if you can help me get a lot more viewers, I’m giving away a bottle of port! Happy Blogging! Cheers! Let me know if there’s anything you’d like to collaborate on…

    A little on the fruity side, but not bad. And very impressive for seven bucks. A little leathery, a slight bitterness in the finish. All-in-all, one of the few truly drinkable under-$10 pinots I’ve tried.

      Well said. I totally agree with your review, thanks for the comment! Let us know if you come across any other good inexpensive Pinots. Have you tried the Backhouse?
