Wine Review: Cellar No 8 Pinot Noir

There are great tasting Pinot Noir wines for under $10. Looking for strawberry jam, medium-bodied, spicy, subtle tannins and a tropical flavor with just a touch of nutmeg you may want to try Cellar No 8 Pinot Noir. A great wine for the dinner table and back yard events. The wine offers a fruity and subtle flavor that will not overpower your casual wine drinkers. 

The winery was started in California in 1881 by an Italian immigrant family. They invited others come and work the land for a profit. They eventually formed their own community on the 1,620-acre parcel of land. Over the years they expanded and developed a colony of 6,000 acres with dozens of families working together for a profit. No 8 was the name of one of their cellars and holds some of the colony’s history.

Great tasking wine is not the only Cellar No 8 is offering. Pinot Noir is full of resveratrol that according to a 1999 study in the American Journal of Enology and Viticulture it can improve cardiovascular health, nervous system functioning, and fight cancer (1). Women should drink no more than one 5 oz glass a day and men should drink no more than 10 oz a day to receive the maximum benefit.
