September's Varietal Feature: Pinot Noir

The weather is literally in that zone of perfection the last few weeks. Warm days and cooler evenings make us want to drink wine! (than again what doesn't)

This month on our feature table we are showcasing Pinot Noir. Seems like the perfect transition to fall weather. Pinot Noir can be a very alluring varietal. They can be intensly aromatic (think cherry, cranberry, and baking spices) and on the palate there can be the flavors ranging from red fruit to cherry pie to mushrooms and earth. So many variances and so many interesting and alluring smells and tastes and they all sort of remind me of fall.

Here are several of our favorite Pinots at the moment - if you stop by the shop be sure to check out our newest offerings and the two Pinots we have currently available by the glass from Allamand and Scott Family.

JK Carrier Provacateur Pinot Noir - This is by far my favorite Pinot in the shop. Cherry, blueberry and soft vanilla nuances on the palate lead into a super silky finish. ($30)

Stoller Pinot Noir - This wine definitely screams fall to me. I love the hints of cinnamon and spice that accent the fruity palate. ($25)

Allamand Pinot Noir - We love wines from this Argentine producer and found this super affordable Pinot to be really soft and pretty but also a bit earthy.  ($17)

Whatever is in your glass, we hope you are enjoying it! See you at the shop.

Cheers!
