Wine of the Week

Scouting for the tastiest pinot noirs

Wine writer Peg Melnik had a blind tasting this week of pinot noirs, from crisp to ripe, with plenty in-between. Our wine-of-the-week winner is the Enkidu, 2010 Tina Marie, Russian River Valley Pinot Noir at $45, well worth the price.

TOP PICK

Enkidu

2010 Tina Marie, Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, 14.4 percent alcohol, ($45).

An elegant pinot with refreshing acidity and layered flavors. Notes of cherry, herbs and spice. Great minerality. Nice length.
