Murfatlar Pinot Noir 2008


John Wine Snob says:


Are you kidding me? Why do the Balkan countries take an honorable grape like a Pinot Noir and degrade it with sugar? I have had only a very few Balkan wines that did not increase my blood sugar. I have not had a Croatian wine in a while, but they used to do some pretty nice ones. But this Romanian bottle of Pinot Noir called, Murfatlar 2008 at $9.99 nearly ruined my evening. I almost drank it with a teaspoon because I felt like I was drinking cough syrup. The Pinot is still evident, so it is not a total loss, but if you have a bowl of really nice ripe berries why cloy them with more sugar. All that said, did I pour it down the drain? Noooo, of course not. I drank it.


This disappointment gets 1.5 stars.

  1. your opinions of Josefina Rose and of Murfatlar (pinot noir late reserve) are all wrong. they are simply fruitier than you would like. I think they are super for the money although Legacy P/N Late Reserve (Murfatlar in Romania)

  2. cont. from previous post: the Romanian pinor noir late reserve I have always bought here for $6.99, and for anout $2.99 in Bucharest. BTW, Romania is not a Balkan country.
