We all remember the movie, Sideways, and it’s ode to the Pinot Noir grape. Tuesday, August 18, 2020, is Pinot Noir Day and in this episode, Shelley and Phil will taste through two Pinot Noirs. One is an Oregon Pinot Noir, a 2018 Barrel Select from Willamette Valley Vineyards and the other is a French Pinot Noir, a 2017 Louis Jadot Bourgogne from the famed Burgundy region of France. Pinot Noir is a fantastic wine, but a temperamental grape. Elegant and berry-like, its velvet flavor is the perfect addition to any affair. Pinot Noir Day celebrates this wine and the regions of the world in which it’s cultivated.
