The last couple nights I drank the 2010 Irony Monterey County pinot noir, which ran me about $15.
I wanted to like it, especially for $15, but my reaction in general was meh. Drinkable, ok with food, but nothing that really turned me on. Just a pretty run-of-the-mill pinot. The label says notes of cherry (what pinot doesn't?), strawberry (I can maybe say I got that here), and vanilla.
The label recommends this with a sun dried tomato pesto pasta, grilled seafood, or pizza, and it might open up better with one of those. I'd say buy it when you see it on sale.
