Pinot Noir (PEE-noh NWAHR)
The Pinot Noir grape has been famously nicknamed “the Heartbreak Grape” due to its notoriously finicky nature and the trouble that growers go to in order to ensure a successful harvest. The Pinot Noir Red wine originates in France.
Taste: Delicate savoury aromas and red fruit flavors of cherry, strawberry, raspberry and plum are accompanied by additional complex flavors which can emerge as the wines age and mature. These additional flavors include fig, truffle, wood smoke and violets as well as forest floor and animal notes of mushroom and leather. Age can add great complexity to the best wines.
Tannin: Low to medium
Age: Most are best when young, while top quality wines develop great complexity with age.
