Wine Wednesday: A to Z Pinot Noir


I love Pinot Noir. If you're reading this, you probably do too. Unfortunately, a lot of the great Pinot Noir is beyond my budget. --- Well, for the low price of $18.99, A to Z Wineworks Pinot Noir is damned hard to beat.

Oregon's A to Z Wineworks is made up of an all-star winemaking dream team with a simple, but straightforward strategy: grow the best fruit possible and create an irresistible blend. A to Z Pinot Noir is such a wine.

It's brimming with ripe Bing cherry, raspberry and strawberry aromas. The tannins are ripe and refined and on the palate there are succulent dark fruit flavors combines with hints of spice and cola. Do I taste Dr. Pepper in there? It's a killer Pinot Noir and will be for the next 10 to 12 years. I really like it with duck.
