Pinot Noir Tasting at The Wine Cellar

This Friday at the Wine Cellar Jeff will be focusing on Pinot Noir. Pinot Noir by many accounts is the most difficult grape to care for in the vineyard and to manage in the cellar. The grapes tender skin is highly sensitive to climate variations, and is best suited to cooler climates, where in hotter climates as Jancis Robinson puts it, Pinots sensual “essence can easily turn to jam.” Just as important as the weather, the soil adds another factor in the complexity of growing Pinot Noir, thriving best in soils that are composed primarily of limestone. Thus, Pinot Noir is a direct product of its environment and a great example of terroir expression.

To showcase how different environments showcase the many faces of Pinot Noir Jeff will have us taste Pinots from New Zealand, Oregon, California and of course France.

FREE as always this Friday from 5:00 to 8:00.

One thought on “Pinot Noir Tasting at The Wine Cellar

  1. I have visited this site on many an occasion now but this post is the 1st one that I have ever commented on.

    Congratulations on such a fine article and site I have found it very helpful and informative – I only wish that there were more out there like this one.

    I never leave empty handed, sometimes I may even be a little disappointed that I may not agree with a post or reply that has been made. But hey! that is life and if every one agreed on the same thing what a boring old world we would live in.

    Keep up the good work and cheers.
