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!
