2008 Newport Vineyards Landot Noir

We found this at one of our local vineyards in Rhode Island; not sure of how far out into other states it's distributed. Don't look too hard. Although this wine had some interesting notes coming through, it lacked any finish and complexity. This landot noir was smooth, and had flavors of earth, feet, and prunes. Appetizing I know! It tasted young, had too much heat, and was very light bodied. I'd pass over this wine for another, though we are proud to taste a wine from our native soil!
