| ||Tasted by Burgundy Al on 3/17/2013 & rated 91 points: Popped and poured, then consumed over three hours. Started with very fresh red and black cherry aromas and some five spice. Mostly red cherry flavors to start, also nicely spiced, evolving to darker cherry with a slightly more mature character as the wine got more air and time in glass. Very elegant tannins and very good energy start-to-finish. (978 views)|

Pinot Noir Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.
