2007 Maison Louis Latour Pinot Noir: Rusty, and too young.

feb. 6, 2010: we paired this red burgundy with grilled chicken spiced with a garlic and red pepper rub, cauliflower in coconut-bechamel sauce, and leftover carrots and green beans. victoria said it was like an acidic, rusty nail right out of the gate. it had slight leanings -- actually more in the "barely there" category -- toward strawberry and cinnamon, but unfortunately, the nose and the flavor were firmly of iron. greg agreed, though he added that the nose was sweet despite its rusty luster. 13 percent alcohol. purchased for $15.29 at varsity liquors with a 10-percent 6-bottle discount.
