Certainly something of a 'fringe category' in the big world of wine, but the Pinot Noirs from the Loire Valley can be very interesting beverages particularly in vintages that are a little riper like 2009.  Think of this more along the lines of a ripe spätburgunder than something from Santa Rita Hills, with bright ruby color, tender but crunchy red cherry fruit, bright flavors and a fine streak of minerality.  This is a delicate yet persistent take on the varietal that has enought flesh to make it work.  High toned and quite pretty. 

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is considered by many the finest red wine grape in the world. Pinot Noir is the grape for France’s famous Burgundies; Pinot has the ability to allow the “terroir” (the unique, site-specific combination of soil, climate and other factors) to show in the wines, and that is the mist important goal in Burgundy. Pinot Noir is also important in the USA, and it’s planted widely in California and Oregon. Pinots can be made into wines of delicacy, with expressive aromatics or full-bodied, richly-fruited examples. Though sometimes difficult to grow, Pinot Noir is truly a winemaker’s grape.
