Hey, it is Game of Thrones Sunday every Sunday so there is wine in the house! If it’s good, you need to know about it.
This week it is Rascal Pinot Noir from Oregon’s Willamette Valley. The wine is all pinot noir. It is nice and light, though technically medium bodied. If a cold white or rosé isn’t your jam, this is great for a warm summer evening. You could even chill this one slightly. It is lightly juicy, tasting very berry. Which berries? Definitely some cherry which adds to the summer vibe. Just in case you are wondering, I didn’t get much in the way of smoky, woodsy, or earthy notes or undertones. This is a straight forward pinot. All in all, it was pretty good. But is it as good as Peeno Noir from Titus? Once I know that it is a friendly wine we will be talking about it!
I picked up this bottle at Bowery and Vine (the MOST AWESOME folks work in the shop). It was only $14.99 and they deliver to folks in parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Many people ask how wine can’t be vegan by nature. Click here for the explanation. Barnivore is a great source for the more common wines which I never find at my local and carefully curated favorite wine shops.
