For the Pinot Noir wines I sampled (with WSET notes):
Queen of Hearts Pinot Noir 2008 "Santa Barbara"
Overall, ok but didn't do anything for me.
Hob Nob Pinot Noir 2007, France
Winner: Hob Nob, Old World
Now on to the Tempranillo...
Campo Reales Joven Tempranillo, 2009 "La Mancha"
Duende Tempranillo 2007 "Lodi"
This judgment was more difficult than the Pinot Noir but I give a slight edge to the Duende. Have to say, either would be a good choice for an outdoor BBQ.
