Castle Rock 2006 - Pinot Noir
I took this picture so I could remember this wine. I've never been a big fan of wine. I usually don't like the taste of most of them and after only one glass it makes me sleepy. But, I thoroughly enjoyed this wine. Normally, if I do drink wine, I go for a Reisling or a dessert wine such as port because I prefer the wine to be sweet. I bought this because I was looking for a red wine for a recipe I was making and didn't think a sweet wine would work. I knew I wouldn't use the whole bottle so I was hoping that the rest would be drinkable and much to my surprise it was very drinkable. This was fairly cheap too. I think it was only $10 for the bottle. I'm not sure what the proper temperature is for serving it but I tried it both room temperature and cold and either seemed fine. Although, I think room temperature had a slightly better taste.
