Of all the grapes used in the winemaking business few are as finicky as the Pinot Noir. This red grape has some of the thinnest skin of any grape which make is very hard to grow with conditions having to be exact for it to thrive. But it is this same characteristic that makes the taste of this red wine so desirable for those who usually prefer to enjoy a glass of white wine.
The flavor of a Pinot Noir is reminiscent of bright red fruits such as cranberries and cherries. With its light tannins producing a silky smoothness paired with earthy undertones this is one vino that will add a flavorful touch to unique wine glassware such as Arctic wine glasses.
The natural lightness of Pinot Noir lends itself well to being paired with foods that you would not usually consider having a red wine with. Things such as vegetables and veal are perfect foods to serve along with this fine wine.
But it is important to remember the name of a Pinot Noir when you find you that suits you. Known for being really good or really bad this finicky grape is often referred to as the Holy Grail when you find a bottle that is perfect.
