This week’s W.O.W. is a juicy “Old World” Pinot Noir that’s loaded with “New World” flavor. This little beauty from the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France comes packed in wood and pairs well with lighter fare like poultry and salmon now that you’ve resolved to watch what you eat in the new year!
2014 Maison Nicolas, Pinot Noir
Bright and fresh with aromas and flavors of cherry, red raspberry and cranberry with a hint of chocolate. Soft and round with slight notes of orange citrus and white pepper and earth on the smooth finish. Did I mention that it comes packed in wood? At this price you may want to grab the whole case!
