This Tuesday Tasting we try 3 flavorful examples of New World pinot noirs. Featuring
- Migration, CA – This Russian River red, made by Duckhorn, scored a 93 from Robert Parker and was declared “gorgeously pure and complex” and we agree: blackberry, cherry, and strawberry preserves are balanced by woodiness and smokey flavors for a truly sophisticated red from start to finish.
- Seduction, South Africa — This bright red from the Hemel-en-Aarde [Heaven and Earth] Valley tastes of ripe raspberries and cherries with a hint of warm spices and an elegant finish.
- Lomas del Valle, Chile – Grown in the Casablanca Valley, where the cool Pacific winds add flavor to this delicate grape, this pinot is rich and fruity with a hint of oak and gingerbread.
