Spring is here! A glorious day out here on the left coast - perfect for a nice light red.
The A to Z Pinot Noir is one of the wines I picked up on my trip up to the Pacific Northwest and it is a wonderful expression of the spin that the higher latitudes take on the Pinot Noir grape. Cheeries of course, but I'm getting a nice tobacco note in the aroma and some great astringent tannins on the finish. Highly recommended but a bit pricey - running around $20.
