Wine Review: Pinot Noir, Hob Nob

After more than a month of hurry-up-and-wait uncertainty, Xavier and I finally closed on our house this week.

To celebrate, we went to Cacique (Naturally. Where else would we go?)

Xavier was smart and ordered the Cab from the Devil’s Locker but I wanted to try something different so I ordered the Hob Nob Pinot Noir.

Not the best choice.

I mean, it wasn’t terrible, I still drank it but I won’t be ordering it again. What they call an “elegant bouquet of cherries”, I would refer to “reminiscent of cough syrup” but, you know, tomato / ta-maw-toe. Not much oak either which, for me, is a drawback because I do like the oak.

The glass was $7.99 but the whole bottle is only $8.99 at Total Wine and Hob Nob Pinot Noir is probably not the best representation of French wine.

My advice, spend a few more dollars on something better.
