2006 Valley of the Moon Pinot Noir

I picked up this 2006 Valley of the Moon pinot on the recommendation of my friend at the Liquee Mart.  She said after a red wine tasting they'd had recently, lots of people were buying this.  It ran me about $11. The winery is in Glen Ellen, CA, north of San Francisco and just south of Santa Rosa.

Last time I listen to her.  I aerate my red wines so that's not an issue.  This tasted bland/weak on first tasting, with no special notes to it or body.  It didn't hold up well either; the next night or two later I had another glass, and it was worse, with a bitter flavor.  I drank that glass but I poured out the rest of the bottle.  I should know better than to try wines with funky names!
