Pinot Noir is my wife’s favorite red and as I’ve tasted more and more of these I’m really liking them. They are lighter than your bolder reds like Cab, Merlot, Zinfandel or Syrah wines. They don’t leave heavy acidic ending. They are dry and have a smoothness or silkiness to them. They go down easy with a pleasant ending that can last a while.
A good thing about Pinot Noir is you can serve it to just about anyone and they’ll enjoy it even if it isn’t their absolute favorite.
This is the first of 8 Pinot Noir wines I’m tasting as part of our March Pinot Noir Exploration theme. It’s the G.Stepp 2017 Pinot Noir and it’s from Germany. It’s not where I expected to be finding Pinot Noir. It’s not like I’m the Pinot Noir pro, but Germany is not where you typically look. This is one I really liked this one. This one has that floral cherry smell a dry smooth taste and really nice finish. I really like this one and for under $12 through my Naked Wine membership, you can’t beat it.
