John rated this wine as 60/100 with the following review:

Starts off smooth and nice but leaves an unpleasant (to me) after-taste.
Displaying fresh fruit aromas and flavours of cherries, strawberries and red currants, our 2008 Mirassou California Pinot Noir is a bright reflections of our heritage as the pioneer of California Pinot Noir. This wine is at its best if enjoyed within a year of release, but can age in the bottle for up to three years if carefully cellared.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
