Another Crap Wine

Again, I don't mean to be a snob, but it is possible to reach a point where you get angry at certain wines. Case in point: the 2003 Lindemans Bin 99 Pinot Noir. Now, I was highly impressed with their 2002 Bin 75 Riesling. But this pinot... ehhh....

First off, it doesn't have any of the lovely flavors of a fun pinot--the black cherry and jam that comes from a young one, or the various complex flavors of an older one. Frankly, it tastes like it's about fifteen minutes away from being oxidized. But in fairness, I think I'll try it tomorrow with a fresh palate.
