Jackhammer, Pinot Noir, Central Coast, California, USA 2011




A delicious Pinot for under £20 is hard to find, so Jackhammer is a wine you shouldn't miss out on, says Decanter's tasting team.

From cool vineyards in Monterey, San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara, Jackhammer Pinot Noir boasts complex red cherry and floral notes, lively acidity and great texture. While fruit is the main focus, it has lovely complexity and a smoky yet fresh finish. Alcohol 13.5%.
Rating: 17.75 / 20
