Just Pinot Noir – from the Wine Virgin

Just Pinot Noir was probably my second favorite wine of the night. I feel like this wine had the perfect balance of taste and drinkability. The flavor was a bit muted compared to some of the others that will be discussed, but it was still a great balance nevertheless.

It may sound dumb to say, but the smell of this wine was a grape – but a really dark grape or fruit, possibly a blackberry? As I mentioned before, I do not eat a lot of fruits, so sometimes the taste can be hard to identify specifically. However, I have realized that from talking to other people and discussing the wine I can learn a lot. This discussion with new friends played a role in a few of the other wines I tasted.  The taste of this wine was very smooth, not very complex, but the aftertaste was incredibly sweet. It was borderline acidic, but went very nicely with cheese.

As the previous wine, I think this could be a great wine to serve at a party because it seemed liked, not necessarily loved, by everyone. It was drinkable like the Sherwood Estates Pinot, but had a bit more flavor and spice.
