Turning Leaf Pinot Noir

February 10, 2006

Feeling adventurous (or cheap – take your pick) I bought a bottle of the Gallo Turning Leaf Pinot Noir. Not expecting much, I was pleasantly surprised. For $10.99, I found some actual varietal character. There was a definite hint of good old Pinot funk on the nose and the mouth had the classic cherry taste I associate with Pinot Noirs from the lighter side of the spectrum. There was even a hint of tannins on the (admittedly short) finish. It went perfectly with a Greek pizza from Pizza Hotline as I watched the evening news.

However, I think I’ll save this one for summer. It’s not a winter wine. but twenty minutes in the fridge and it will be the perfect patio pounder for those hot days of July (which seem so far away right now). As nice as it was, it still doesn’t match up to the Cono Sur Pinot Noir, although it was nice for a change of scenery.

For $11 and change, it’s worth it. And it used a Stelvin closure (a fancy way of saying screwcap).



  1. For my money, Turning Leaf wines, in general, represent great value!
    I here from the Product Consultant at my local LC that they’re going to bring back the “buy two bottles get on free” promotion that they had before Xmas back for Easter.
