Kris Pinot Noir 2011
Pinot Noir (aka Pinot Nero) is finding a very favorable home in the northeastern area of Italy. There are several excellent producers--*of which Franz Haas is in the top group*--of Pinot Noir in the Trentino-Alto Adige region that made the other Pinot cousin, Pinot Grigio so famous. A very fine value Pinot Noir.This red wine is fruity, with hints of earthiness, and pairs well with a variety of cheeses.
Editorial Reviews for Kris Pinot Noir
Sweet and candied on the nose this reminds me of fruit loops cereal, full of orange, cherry and lime aromas. Soft, round and easy to like this offers up a rather anonymous mouthful of chalky red berry fruit with faint herbal accent notes. For a small scaled wine there are some rather obvious tannins here that quickly take control of the modest finish. Chunky and raw this smells better than it tastes. 80pts
