Pinot Noir

One of the noblest red wine grapes. Pinot noir is difficult to grow, rarely blended, with no roughness. Food pairings: excellent with grilled salmon, chicken, lamb and Japanese dishes (notably sushi rolls). Districts: makes the great reds of Burgundy (from Bourgogne, France), and good wines from Austria, California, Oregon, and New Zealand. Typical taste in varietal wine: very unlike Cabernet Sauvignon. The structure is delicate and fresh. The tannins are very soft; this is related to the low level of polyphenols. The aromatics are very fruity (cherry, strawberry, plum), often with notes of tea-leaf, damp earth, or worn leather. Yet pinot noir is very transparent to the place where it is grown. The staggering range of wines produced makes it pointless to define which personality is the best expression of the variety.

  5. 2014 Meiomi Monterey County Pinot Noir

    2014 Meiomi Monterey County Pinot Noir

    $27.94

    Deep, rich garnet color. The wine opens up with aromas of ripe berries, fresh cranberry, candy apple and malted vanilla, some of which carries through to the palate. There’s a hint of Granny Smith apple on first sip that beautifully balances out the rich cream soda and cherry cola notes. It is an extremely layered wine, both in structure and flavor, with a slight earthiness and sweet oak on the finish. The wine almost contradicts itself, managing to display freshness and maturity all at the same time, which is achieved through careful blending. Learn More

  9. 2012 Domaine Mouton Givry 1er Cru Clos Jus

    2012 Domaine Mouton Givry 1er Cru Clos Jus

    $59.99

    Domaine Mouton's aptly-named 'Clos Jus' ('jus' means 'juice') is the Mouton wine we go to first. Always ripe and juicy, ready to drink relatively early. Minerality is the key here, from a vineyard with different soil make-up to the rest of the appellation. Dark fruit, earth notes, delicate structure fleshed out to fullness. We appreciate the finesse in the winemaking, an unstinting perfectionism that has been communicated across a generation. The self-effacing Moutons would be the last to admit it, but for us their wines are nearly always perfect.

  11. Evening Land Seven Springs Pinot Noir 2011

    Evening Land Seven Springs Pinot Noir 2011

    $65.94

    Clear ruby-red with tones of purple, the elegant nose dances between fruit aromas of wild berries and fragrant floral layers of lavender, exotic spice with herbaceous undertones of rosemary and tarragon. The complex aromas complement one another and take a few moments to identify. The palate has a fine texture of soft tannins with a purity of flavors and a vibrant core – seamless and elegant with bright cherry and a crushed rock character. The wine has wonderful balance and suppleness that sustain the minerality on the long finish. Learn More
  12. 2011 Drouhin Gevery Chambertin

    2011 Drouhin Gevery Chambertin

    $75.94

    Category: Red Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir Region: France » Burgundy » Cote de Nuits Producer: Joseph Drouhin Joseph Drouhin Gevrey-Chambertin is a wine with a beautiful, bright ruby colour. Intensely fruity on the nose, the aromas are reminiscent of black cherry, wild blackberry and liquorice. The woody character is subtle and marries delicately with the other aromas. As the wine evolves, there are more complex notes, such as mild spice, nutmeg and leather. Later still, mushroom and damp earth nuances make their appearance. Although present on the palate, tannin is never astringent but blends itself harmoniously with the natural freshness and "gras" (velvety texture) of the wine. The same aromas encountered earlier on the nose are found again in the aftertaste. Learn More
