Pleasing Pinots

pinotsThis Tuesday Tasting (May 21) we try three elegant Pinot Noirs from three different regions. Featuring:

  • Peter Yealands, New Zealand – This Marlborough Pinot Noir is sustainably harvested along the border of Cooks Strait (the water separating NZ’s two islands), benefitting from the warm sun and cool ocean breezes to create a juicy, ripe red tasting of dark berries, plum, cassis and a touch of mocha. $16 btl, $7 btg
  • Folly of the Beast, California – This Central Coast Pinot (again, benefitting from a cool coastal climate) is partially aged in new French oak for rich flavours of bright red cherry, a hint of clove and yes, a touch of oak. $18 btl, $8 btg
  • Forefront, Oregon – This Willamette Valley Pinot does a great job of balancing the bright fruit flavours of the grape with the touch of acidity the region is famous for: cherry and raspberry combine with a hint of cinnamon in this structured pinot with a soft, smooth finish. $17 btl, $8 btg

Tasting: $12
