Pinot Noir "Heartbreak Grape"
May 18, 3pm
Rolling Pin presents three Pinot Noirs, all from American producers including the wine regions of California and Oregon. Although it is a fickle vine to tend, the payoff of its grapes is tremendous, producing a fruit-forward, silky-smooth wine that leaves a lasting impression on the palate. We will learn the distinct flavors of the same grapes grown in these different regions. From the established to the new kids on the block, we'll present to you some of the finest producers of the "Heartbreak Grape."
