Read up on the Pinot Noir article we released a few weeks back to familiarize yourself with where Pinot are grown. Pinots are a finicky grape variety which cannot be grown just anywhere.
Duckhorn Vineyards and their Decoy brand is one you’ll find in a lot of places. Their wines are typically in the $15 to $25 range. While visiting their Napa vineyard tasting room, I had a chance to try the Pinot Noir they were sampling. This one is NOT from Napa, but from their vineyard right over the hills in Sonoma County with its Russian River Valley that is just perfect for these grapes. I couldn’t help but bring home a bottle of this one so Sofia and I could do a video tasting.
Sofia and I weren’t big Pinot lovers until recently. It’s NOT that we didn’t like them. We just hadn’t tried that many. Now that we are trying more and more, we are developing a real appreciation for these and enjoying them.
Check out our video and tell us what you think about the Pinot Noirs you’ve been checking out.
