2010 Irony Monterey County Pinot Noir

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.
