Running with Scissors Pinot Noir 2008

Purchased from Total Wine and More, $8-10, commonly also found in other wine and grocery stores.

Teri: I am a huge fan of Pinot Noir but was not impressed at all with this wine. The smell was very bland with only slight hints of strawberry and red fruits. The taste carried notes of vanilla, strawberry and raspberry but contained too much of a pepper for my taste buds. 70 points

Aaron: Do not buy this wine.  Teri is too nice; this wine was horrible! The nose left me wanting more of anything, I felt like I was smelling water.  Teri claims that there were hints of fruits and other pleasantries in the flavor … that’s just not correct.  This was peppery and spicy and unpleasant.  My rating is generous.
