“With so voluptuous a perfume, so sweet an edge, they make the blood run hot,” Joel Fleischman, wine columnist at Vanity Fair, once described of Pinot Noir. Also christening it as a fickle mistress, a minx, and as sex in a glass, wine critics have had no hesitation in oft comparing Pinot Noir to a woman.

With many qualities lending themselves to this parallel, the best is likely that the Pinor Noir grape is difficult. Difficult to cultivate. Difficult to transform into wine. Difficult to pinpoint in taste.

The Pinot Noir grape is grown in tightly clustered dark purple, pine-cone shaped bunches, the resemblance from which it gets its name. Considered to produce the finest wines in the world, its fame as a Noble grape goes hand in hand Read more »

  • Elk Cove Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Ripe cherry and mixed berry aromas with pleasant spice. Full of acidity on the palate with tart cherry and cranberry flavors, earthy tar coming through towards the finish and a zesty spice throughout that lifts the palate. Read More

  • Love Oregon Pinot Noir 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Heady floral aromas with cinnamon spice and chalky trailhead dust settle down into fruit notes of black cherry, strawberry and sweetened dried cranberries. This is fresh and lively on the palate with spicy acidity and notes of red licorice, bramble fruit and an herbal note on the finish. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Dense red fruit aromas of dried red currant, cranberry and ripe cherry with clove and cedar spice. Cool and spicy in the mouth with more bold red fruit flavors dancing against full acidity and settling into a medicinal earth and deep cinnamon spice with more earth. Read More

  • Cooper Mountain Vineyards Pinot Noir Cooper Hill 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Fine grained earth and oak notes on the nose with soft cherry fruit and a bit of savory spice.

Good tannic structure from the attack through the finish, with generous ... Read More

  • If you want to try the best kept secret Pinots from the neighboring Santa Barbara area, then you have to get your hands on "Tantara"!! This is one of two top dogs in my book in that AVA including up five anywhere close to it. It's worth every penny, the winemakers, tatse, blend, and only put out the very best. This tiny winery puts out some seri...

  • There are some interesting beginnings with Pinot N on grafted roots for early ripening in the Skagit Vallet area of Washington State. Precoce looking good so far, especially to our band-tailed pigeons.
