Holiday Pinot Noir Tasting
unWine'd with a pour...
Cooralook (Australia): Not overly fruit forward but some cherry on the nose, a bit of acidity but with very mild tannins. $15
Camas (France): This Pinot is Burgundian in style. Not as much fruit on the nose, more earthiness. A little more tannic than the other three Pinots but not too tannic, a nice finish. This is an easy drinking Pinot and a good transition wine if you're not really a red drinker. $13
HandCraft (Cali): Red fruit on the nose, cherry, raspberry. Very mild tannins and a nice balance. A bit of lingering finish as well. $14
cooper hill (Oregon): Light and fragrant. More toward blackberry and some earthiness on the nose, quite different than the Cali Pinot. Not tannic but with a hint of spiciness leading to a very nice finish. Very nice, give it a try if you're a Pinot fan. $18
