Food Pairings for Crane Lake Pinot Noir California
Pinot Noir is perhaps the chanciest major varietal grown in California. And it is also one of the most expensive to produce: yields are rather low, vines are finicky. To find any Pinot Noir at this price with even a slight hint of true varietal character is rare -- and the odds are much higher that a cheap Pinot Noir, as opposed to a Merlot or Cab or Chardonnay, will be, well, disappointing. That is why I am rating this so high: not a perfect Pinot, but a Pinot for all that! And as cheap as any plonk. Moreover, I suspect that this Pinot, despite its lightness, might improve with a few more years aging. Good drinking right now... and that surely is nothing to sniff at! (But sniff the wine before drinking!)
