wine friday: smoking loon pinot noir.

Normally I wouldn’t be at all interested in buying anything with the word “smoking” in it unless, that is, I’m planning on some really great bbq.  I don’t actually have a great track record with smoking.  One of my first attempts was a total failure, my college roommate and I trying desperately to light a cigar we bought at the local Seven Eleven in honor of my 18th birthday.  Apparantly you have to actually cut off the end in order to successfully light it.

But I digress.

This Pinot is “Light garnet in color, fresh crushed raspberries, strawberries, and cranberries are all in the aroma of this bright, fruit-driven Pinot Noir, with a hint of cinnamon stick and spice in the background. On the palate, pomegranate and cranberry fruit have a zesty appeal, paired with the subtle, classic underbrush character that distinguishes Pinot Noir. Moderately light bodied, the soft tannins and fresh acidity strike a nice balance, creating a light finish with red fruit and a touch of spice.” This is according to their winemaker.

Well, whatever…I just thought it was pretty good for the $6 investment.

For your consideration, Smoking Loon Pinot Noir

This Pinot pairs well with pork or a savory sandwich you might enjoy with your summer picnic.

Around $6-7 at most grocery stores.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!  Or pop on over to Facebook and share some of your favorite wine friday moments or pics!

Happy Friday!
