Vinicola Miolo Ltda-Miolo Family Vineyards-Pinot Noir-Brazil-2008-$10.99-A light nose of earth and cherry, medium amber in color for a Pinot.   A light to medium bodied Pinot, smooth, licorice, a little spice. For a $11 it is a good mid week wine that is very drinkable, surprised me since I had never tried a wine from Brazil, and most Pinot Noir at this price level are terrible.                      NR          CR-3.5-4    Good with seafood, salads, cheese.
