Wednesday Wine: California Pinot Noir

Famously difficult to grow, Pinot Noir grapes must be tenderly cared for by both their growers and the weather. Only a handful of regions around the world have the climate to successfully cultivate the delicate fruit and fewer still are the winemakers with the knowledge and patience to see it through to its full potential. Calling France its home turf, California's Pinot Noir has risen to fame as a more accessible wine with fruit forward flavors and high alcohol content.

We like The Pinot Project, Siduri, and Kistler (appearing in ascending price).

Order them up at home with your Minibar app or try something new and tell us how it was!
