This Tuesday Tasting (May 8) we try three light, fruit-filled reds from around the world that showcase the versatility of this elegant grape.
- Zorzal, Argentina – From a region not known for their Pinots, comes a fresh, delicate red that has garnered 91 points from Robert Parker and been called an “unreal value” for a reason: 100% Pinot Noir, partially whole-cluster fermentation, this lively new-world red shows off the bright red berries of the fruit with a hint of blood orange flavor and slightly floral notes. $16 btl, $6 btg
- Bellula Pinot Noir, France – An elegant example of an old-world Pinot Noir, this soft and well-balanced red tastes of cherry, red fruits and a hint of vanilla balanced by a year of aging in French Oak. $16 btl, $6 btg
- Rickshaw Pinot Noir, California – Showcasing the sun of the Sonoma Coast, this Cali red tastes of wild blackberry, blueberry and cherry combined with a touch of black tea and earth. $15 btl, $6 btg
